BWC: "The Multiverse"

The outstanding Baldwin Wallace College Dept. of Astronomy/Burrell Observatory series of lectures resumes on February 3!

Steve Kosztya, Instructor of Chemistry at Cuyahoga Community College, will present a lecture on the Multiverse hypothesis. From the BWU Dept. of Astronomy's invitation email:

Synopsis: The existence of the “multiverse”, or the presence of parallel universes, represents a very large abstraction for most of us, as the concept often seems rooted in genre of science fiction. But still, the idea has, for quite some time, been considered a scientific possibility. 

After the lecture the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting. This is a free lecture and no reservations are required. Parking is available next to and behind CIG and adjacent to the Observatory off of Fifth Avenue West.

Note - The program begins at 7:30pm, but we made the meetup 1/2 hour early for ease of parking and so members can find each other before the lecture. Some of these events end up being standing room only, so it is advised to come early to ensure a seat.

See you there! :)

    Good, if brief, review of astronomy since Copernicus. Didn't understand how dark matter and dark energy relate to quantum theory, and all of that to string theory, and how any of that necessitates the notion of multiverses (except having to do with strings' vibrations, but that could be been covered better). Covering all of that, though, would have taken more than an hour, probably at least a masters in astronomy. :P

      I will not be able to make it.

      For anyone coming from the East side, there's a very bad accident on 480, right past the 271/480 interchange.

    Marni and I will not be able to attend :( I was really looking forward to this. If anyone might want to help members find each other, please post where you are seated, etc here in the comments. Enjoy the presentation!

    I recall this venue filling up sometimes, and I would guess this one might be popular--I recommend getting seated early!

    Bob and I can't attend this evening....we hope there is another similar presentation soon.

    I RSVPed yes to get it on my calendar, but I'm not sure yet - I probably won't know for certain until that afternoon. It looks really interesting, though, so hopefully it'll work out.

      It took me about 3 minutes to get that, but now it's hilarious, and I'm wondering if all of me are this slow.

    Maybe. Not sure yet.
