Science Lecture Series: The Big Bang and the Origin of Our Universe by Dr. Dale Kocevski
Thursday, Dec. 7th, 7pm
167 Rangeley Road
Does our Universe have a finite origin or has it existed unchanged for all eternity? Either answer has profound implications about the nature of our reality. Explore how astronomers came to the conclusion that the Universe, and time itself, had a beginning in the Big Bang, about 14 billion years ago. Using the planetarium we will fly to the edge of the known universe and immerse in the physics behind the Big Bang. What do modern observations tell us about the structure and evolution of the Universe over cosmic time and how the contents of the Universe will dictate its ultimate fate? Join us to find out!
