Researchers' Night 2014 – Your Car and an F1 Car: Science and Technology of the XXI Century

26 September 2014 -
6:00pm to 9:00pm

Espacio Fundación Telefónica. C/ Fuencarral 3 (at the corner of Gran Vía), Madrid

On Friday, September 26th 2014, from 18:00 to 21:00, some researchers from the IMDEA research Institutes will show us how you may find in a car examples of progress accomplished by science and technologies as diverse and seemingly unrelated as software, materials or food science. Researchers at IMDEA compare -technologically speaking- an F1 car with an everyday automobile as well as the driving of an F1 pilot with any driver in terms of responsiveness, special needs for hydration and nutrition, physical training ... Furthermore, they explain the scientific and technical advances that have made possible the evolution from a single-seater to the current car to airports, computers, etc. Before the curtain fall some researchers will pick up their guitars and keyboards and sing some popular songs starring ... a car.

Audience: General public. FREE ENTRANCE UNTIL FULL. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO MAKE A RESERVATION
