Without reading tea leaves (or consulting a crystal ball), the methods of science help us to gain deep understanding about the workings of the universe. This two-part presentation by four astronomers from the University of Chicago will discuss a broad spectrum of cosmic concerns. The first presentation is entitled Reading the Tea Leaves of Eternity: Dark Energy, Dark Matter, and the Beginning of Time. The second is New Messengers (Gravitational Waves and Neutrinos) and What They Can Tell Us.
Our speakers all hail from the University of Chicago: Dr. Joshua Frieman (Chair of Astronomy & Astrophysics), Dr. Dan Hooper (Associate Professor, Astronomy & Astrophysics), Dr. Gordan Krnjaic (Assitant Professor, Astronomy & Astrophysics), and Dr. Angela Olinto (Dean, Physical Sciences Division).
This College of Marin event is free and unticketed. Following a formal 90-minute presentation, the astronomers will answer audience questions for 30 minutes.
The California Department of Public Health recommends masking in indoor public spaces.
