How humans created the first clockwork Cosmos

Please join us for an evening with Prof Xenophon Moussas, showcasing The Antikythera Mechanism, a unique, ahead-of-its-time mechanical device, often described as the first computer.

The Antikythera Mechanism is a unique ambassador of Greece and Greek civilization that visitors will probably remember forever. It is universally considered one of the most important archaeological artifacts. The mechanism is very important not only for Greece, but for Europe and all humanity.

Prof Moussas’ research provides robust evidence that the Greeks were developing high-level science and technology based on knowledge of the laws of physics, much higher than estimated or usually accepted so far by the global scientific community.
