Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016
Doors at 5:30pm. Talk begins at 7pm.

In the 1930s the worlds of science fiction and science fact collided to save the world. This talk will explore how popular futuristic belief in death rays led to the key development that would allow the Royal Air Force to defeat the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain.

What is a Café Historique? A group of interesting people in a convivial café setting, who gather to hear a talk and discuss new ideas about how the past has shaped our present and future, as well as to drink, eat, converse, meet friends, and have an evening to remember.

Café Historique is a pay-what-you-want event and is open to the public. Please look for the donation box at the entrance; if each audience member contributed as little as a twoonie, the series would be able to cover its production costs!

Seating is limited — to guarantee a place, audience members should reserve tickets using Eventbrite.ca:
