From contemplating the possibility of human-robot love, to witnessing how brain stimulation might one day help people recover from a stroke, join us for this month's Lates as we look forward to the promising future of science and technology. Professor Winfield will be outlining new research on ethical robots and presenting the debate about whether or not we should build moral machines. You can also find out how technology is helping to answer age-old questions about who we are and whether a robot might one day have a sense of self.

Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age
Opens 18 September 2015

Discover the dramatic story of how Russia turned the dream of space travel into a reality and became the first nation to explore space in this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition.

Cosmonauts will reveal the most significant collection of Russian spacecraft and artefacts ever to be shown in the UK, as well as poignant testimonies and memorabilia belonging to some of the biggest names in spaceflight. Discover the deeply personal stories of the pioneers who kick-started the space age.
