Third Angel presents 600 People at Darwen Library Theatre

“We step out of our solar system, into the universe, seeking only peace and friendship…”

So says the message from the human race on the Voyager spacecraft. But is there, you know, anyone out there? Alexander Kelly really wanted to know, so he spoke to an astrophysicist to find out.

This is what he found out: Stellar Wobble. The Mirror Test. The Drake Equation. Fermi’s Paradox. Enhanced humans and murderous dolphins.

Somewhere between stand-up comedy and an astrophysics lecture, Third Angel brings you a simple show about huge ideas: the story of how a three-hour conversation with an astrophysicist changed the way Alexander understands the way the Universe works.

600 People explores how we think about evolution and intelligence, belief and invention, communication and space travel. A show that explores the stories we tell in order to understand our place in the cosmos. A show that asks if there are extraterrestrials in our galaxy. A show that asks what it means to be human.

We said they were big ideas…
