Topic: Your Place in the Universe: Understanding Our Big, Messy Existence

Speaker: Paul Sutter

Description:
Our universe changes every day. It was different in the past, and it will be different in the future. This is something we just learned about a hundred years ago, and we're still wrestling with the implications. Including, but not limited to, the fact that someday no more stars will shine.

Bio:
Paul studies the earliest moments of the Big Bang, the emptiest places in the universe, and novel methods for detecting the first stars. He received his PhD in Physics in 2011 as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow, and prior to his current position he held research fellowships in Paris and Italy. Host of the popular Ask a Spaceman! podcast and YouTube series, Paul also regularly appears on radio, TV, and in print, including on the Science Channel, History Channel, and Weather Channel. His first book, Your Place in the Universe, was published in November 2018.

***************** Paul's new book will be available for purchase at the event for $25 per copy and he would also be signing copies! *******************
