Cafe Scientifique sponsors free science lectures that discuss current scientific research but at a level aimed for the general public. The November meeting is:
The Evolution of the Universe Revealed by Hubble
The Hubble Space Telescope captures breathtaking images, but what can we learn from them? Dr. Andrew Zentner, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pittsburgh will highlight some of the most influential Hubble observations and highlight their scientific significance.
"The Evolution of the Universe Revealed by Hubble" will focus on how these images:
- Aid in understanding the 14-billion-year evolution of the universe as we know it.
- Shed light on the formation of galaxies and structure in the universe.
- Display the formation of new stars and solar systems in our galaxy.
