Join us at UW Space Place for a live, interactive program direct from this year's World Science Festival in New York City. Space Place will host "Ripples from the Big Bang: Listening to the Beginning of Time" featuring cosmologists Alan Guth and Andrei Linde, among others, and moderated by best-selling author and physicist Brian Greene. They will explain and discuss the recent spectacular discovery of signs of inflation in the cosmic background radiation. Inflation has been part of the theoretical discussion of the Big Bang for over 30 years, but this discovery is the first direct evidence for that phase of the universe's evolution.
Members of the Space Place audience will be able to submit questions to the moderator of the event before and during the program itself. (They will respond as time permits.)
Join us at UW Space Place, 2300 S. Park St., on Friday, 30 May 2014, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for this special event. It's sold out in New York City, but you can see it with us!
