Upcoming In-Person Event:

What’s eating the universe? And other cosmic questions. A popular physics talk by Paul Davies

Friday, November 5, 2021 | 3:00- 4:30 p.m.

In the constellation of Eridanus there lurks a cosmic mystery, as if something has taken a huge bite out of the universe, leaving a supervoid. Could it be an enormous black hole, another universe, or an expanding vacuum bubble, destined to annihilate everything in existence? That is just one of many cosmic mysteries that have left scientists scratching their heads. In this lecture, based on his new book, award-winning physicist Paul Davies will describe how the universe came to exist, outline the many remaining puzzles and explain some of the extraordinary breakthroughs of the past few decades.

Admission is FREE but registration is required.
