If you could eat and drink the universe, what would it taste like? Astrophysicist Roberto Trotta joins forces with An Lanntair and Uig Sands restaurant to bring complex astrophysics to life through two unique but complementary events – with cocktails and canapes at An Lanntair on Saturday night and dinner at Uig Sands restaurant on Sunday evening. Roberto will host each event, providing an entertaining and educational experience for everybody….
