A feast of science, technology and engineering know-how is heading for Aberdeen, and our scientists will be lifting the lid on carbon capture and storage (CCS), while honing their pinball skills.
Gareth Johnson, of SCCS, and artist Fergus Dunnet will be taking their popular CCS Pinball Machine to an action-packed weekend of workshops, shows and presentations at the Aberdeen Beach Ballroom, from 13 to 14 September. Their freestanding, retro-styled pinball table takes its inspiration from CCS, and a hint of pop art, to create a high-paced game with a serious message.
Dr David Vega-Maza, of the University of Aberdeen, will join an enlightening line-up of talks to ask whether it's possible to burn more fossil fuels while keeping carbon emissions low. He will then chair an open discussion on the impact of carbon on our climate, and what can be done about it.
