Join us for the kick-off of the inaugural Underground Science Festival by celebrating scientists and luminaries whose contributions to history never received the credit they deserve.
Rosalind Franklin was a pioneer in molecular biology whose x-ray crystallographic photography was instrumental in understanding the double helix structure of DNA. But thanks to the sexism ingrained in science at the time, her role in this historic discovery were only recognized posthumously. Which is like… SOME BULLSHIT.
“Rosalind Franklin’s Revenge” is your chance to hear her story and the stories of other scientists who got totally boned by history!
About the Underground Science Festival
Unearthing science buried by racism and sexism
Tired of hearing the same names honored at every science event? Wondering what’s missing from the mainstream narrative? Sick of boring panels with high ticket prices – or have you just avoided these things at all costs? The Underground Science Festival was created for you. Subversive science comedy, unconventional deep dives into the failures that drive science, and introductions to the unsung and forgotten science heroes who should have gotten credit all along. Come have a drink with us and go home smarter.
