National Science Week runs from August 14 to 22 and, as always, physics is well represented around the nation.

Astrophysicists Professor Alan Duffy and Dr Rebecca Allen, for instance, will be giving guided tours of the universe courtesy of a virtual reality phone app.

Scientist and entertainer Rachel Rayner Science Explainer is gearing up to amuse, inform and entertain with a thrilling exploration of photons and quantum weirdness.

And actor Lauren Gunderson is preparing a stunning bio-play about Eighteenth Century physicist Emilie du Ch√Ętelet.
