SOUNDBITE (English): Lord Martin Rees, President, the Royal Society and Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge "We're one of the oldest academies in the world and mainly we look forward to the future because science is ever more part of our world and part of our concerns. But we are having the luxury of looking back on our past and recording some of the highlights of the work of our fellows right back to the foundation in 1660." 8. Mid close-up of busts in front of doorway 9. SOUNDBITE (English): Lord Martin Rees, President, the Royal Society and Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge "Science is not just for scientists, it's part of everyone's culture and also everyone needs to be involved in deciding how science should be applied, because there are all kinds of priority questions and ethical questions, and scientists themselves have no particular expertise on those, but they should engage with a very wide public and that's what we try to do in the Royal Society." 10.

SOUNDBITE (English): Keith Moore, Librarian and Curator, the Royal Society "This is where Newton takes a prism and splits white light into its constituent colours, so this is really a piece of fundamental, experimental science." 18. Close-up hand pointing to prism in Sir Isaac Newton document 19. SOUNDBITE (English): Keith Moore, Librarian and Curator, the Royal Society "Here is Benjamin Franklin's account of the Philadelphia experiment written from Philadelphia in 1752. He says in it that he's noticed the European newspapers carrying accounts of this, and he writes the Royal Society to give a true account of the experiment. He begins by telling Fellows how to construct a kite made of silk, because of course a paper kite would fall apart in a thunder storm, and then the experiment is conducted, culminating in Franklin holding his knuckle close to the key tied to the kite and the hairs on the back of his knuckle standing up, and then he realises that lightning is of an electrical nature." 19. Close-up hand turning page of Benjamin Franklin's document, 'Flying a kite in an electrical storm (1752)' SOUNDBITE (English): Keith Moore, Librarian and Curator, the Royal Society "Here we have another famous Fellow of the Royal Society, Captain James Cook, who of course explored Australia on his first voyage in the endeavour. Here he is, returning home from the Resolution voyage, one of the Resolution voyages, and detailing how he kept his crew healthy by using sauerkraut in order to prevent scurvy amongst his naval crew." 20.

Professor of Genomic Evolution, UCD School of Medicine and UCD Conway Institute, University College Dublin Founded in 1663, the Royal Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history. It published Isaac Newton’s Principia Mathematica, and Benjamin Franklin’s kite experiment demonstrating the electrical nature of lightning. It also backed James Cook’s journey to Tahiti, reaching Australia and New Zealand, to track the Transit of Venus. The Royal Society's motto "Nullius in verba" is taken to mean "take nobody's word for it". It is an expression of the determination of Fellows to withstand the domination of authority and to verify all statements by an appeal to facts determined by experiment. The leading scientific lights of the past four centuries can be found among the 8,000 plus Fellows elected to the Society to date. From Newton to Darwin to Einstein and beyond, pioneers and paragons in their fields are elected by their peers. Current Fellows include Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking and Tim Berners-Lee.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons is a professional qualification to practise as a senior surgeon in Ireland or the United Kingdom. It is bestowed by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, though strictly the unqualified initials refer to the London College. Several Commonwealth countries have similar qualifications, among them the FRCSC in Canada, FRACS in Australia and New Zealand, FCS(SA) in South Africa, FCSHK in Hong Kong. The original fellowship was available in general surgery and in certain specialties—ophthalmic or ENT surgery, or obstetrics and gynaecology—which were not indicated in the initials. It came to be taken mid-way through training. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video

Mathematics is our most rigorous tool for predicting the future. In some situations, mathematics really can say what will happen next. But in others, the behaviour of even very simple systems is impossible to predict. Using dice, pendulums, and a game of Lemming Musical Chairs, Professor Marcus du Sautoy gives a fun and frenetic introduction to the world of chaos theory. Marcus du Sautoy is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford, where he holds the prestigious Simonyi Chair for the Public Understanding of Science and is a Fellow of New College. Du Sautoy has received a number of awards for his work, including the London Mathematical Society’s Berwick Prize for outstanding mathematical research and the Royal Society of London’s Michael Faraday Prize for ‘excellence in communicating science’. He has been awarded an OBE for his services to science, and was recently elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. His mathematical research has covered a great many areas, including group theory, number theory and model theory, but he has been equally successful in his promotion of mathematics to the general public. He has published a number of best-selling, non-academic books and appears regularly on television and radio. @MarcusduSautoy This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
