Orange County Astronomers: Prof. Brian Hart and the Fate of the Universe

 

 








Brian Hart's New Movie - "Galaxy Clusters: Giants of the Universe" - Free Screening

Experience the clash of titans that will shape the fate of the Universe. One of the things we will see in the new movie is a pull out scene, which tells us where we are, here on Planet Earth, in relation to the rest of the Universe.

We will also hear from top experts in the field, such as myself and my friends Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of New York City's Hayden Planetarium, Professor Peter Fisher of MIT, Dr. Richard Massey of the University of Edinburgh, Professor Max Tegmark of MIT, and Professor Doug Clowe of Ohio University.

We'll also learn about the work of greats like Dr. Vera Rubin and Nobel laureate, Dr. Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar.

In addition, we'll hear about the Chandra X-Ray Observatory and how the Space Shuttle mission to launch Chandra blazed a trail to the stars for women astronauts from all over the world, led by U.S. Air Force LtCol Eileen Collins, the first woman to have commanded and piloted the Space Shuttle. 

My name is Dr. Brian Hart, astrophysicist, and I hope you will join me and my fellow astronomers, and experience the clash of titans that will shape the fate of the Universe. Watch my new movie, "Galaxy Clusters: Giants of the Universe."

    A pleasant evening getting caught up with Prof. Hart and his activities since leaving UCI and the OCA for the Army a few years ago. He still is passionate about his research in X-Ray Astronomy, as shown in his new film.
