Greg Keogh: A Tour of The Elements

Greg Keogh is a software developer in real life, but in this presentation, he returns to his childhood fascination with the history of the periodic table of the elements. The discovery of the elements is a strange detective story that spans all of human history, starting with ancient gold jewelry and lead plumbing and ending with uranium bombs and plutonium reactors. There will be a carefully organised slide show tour of all the elements, with stops along the way for short videos of the more curious ones. Greg has samples of 17 pure elements that he would normally pass around an audience, but sadly, this time he’ll just have to hold them up to the camera.
