Parallel Universes, Lawrence Krauss

 

Lawrence Krauss on Parallel Universes

 

Illinois Science Council is partnering with the Chicago Public Library and the "One Book, One Chicago" program to connect fantasy to physics.  The Library's spring "One Book" selection, Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman, explores an unknown world below the streets of London.

 

Lawrence Krauss is the inaugural director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University and author of Quantum Man: Richard Feynman's Life in Science and The Physics of Star Trek. An acclaimed speaker, respected cosmologist and theoretical physicist, Krauss uses Neverwhere as a starting point for an entertaining lecture on how scientists are exploring the possibility of parallel universes. 

Free and open to the public

    Interesting talk, not quite what I expected (it was more about higher dimensions than about parallel universes), but still it was interesting to listen to a physicist talking about fundamental physics.
