UUCF SR&R - Ira Hamburg Memorial on Understanding the Universe

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax (UUCF) has a strong humanist community and commitment to science as well as a strong overlap with WASH membership. The Science-Reason-Religion forum should be of direct interest to WASH members. Note these events are UUCF posted by WASH but not organized by WASH.

Ira Hamburg Memorial Lecture

Ira Hamburg was the convener of the UU Humanists at UUCF and recently passed away. He will also be honored by the WASH Light The Night Team that will have walked on Oct 6th - http://tinyurl.com/LTNAlexandria . Ira will be honored by UUCF in a full presentation by John Mather in the main sanctuary on our understanding of the universe:

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Understanding in the Age of Science

John Mather presenting

The history of the universe, from the beginning to the end – how does the expanding universe lead to life, and where are "we" going? NASA projects like the COBE and WMAP satellites mapped the early universe, and telescopes like the Hubble and the future James Webb Space Telescope show us what happened and what could happen next.

    Wow! One of the most fascinating and awe-inspiring talks I've ever attended. A "hard-core" science topic made completely digestible by non-scientists. Yum, it was delicious!

    I'll be there in spirit, but practically speaking will be in New York unfortunately.
