Next Meetup

Join Physics Enthusiasts The SECOND Friday of every month!
We are starting a new video series of 24 lectures produced in 2017 by the Great Courses. This time it’s The Theory of Everything: The Quest to Explain All Reality with Professor Don Lincoln. Don Lincoln is a Senior Scientist at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). He is also a Guest Professor of High Energy Physics at the University of Notre Dame. He received his Ph.D. in Experimental Particle Physics from Rice University. This course dives deep into what we know, what we don’t know, and how we hope to move forward to a unified understanding of everything. We will review two lectures every other month. Core members of NYPG, Victor and Dan will take turns monitoring these lectures. The first two lectures cover: 1. Two Prototype Theories of Everything Embark with Dr. Lincoln on a search for a theory of everything-a simple and comprehensive explanation for all physical phenomena in the universe. Confront the incompatibility of our two best prototypes: the standard model of particle physics and the general theory of relativity. 2. The Union of Electricity and Magnetism Learn how two seemingly separate phenomena, electricity and magnetism, were shown by James Clerk Maxwell in the 1860s to be aspects of a single underlying force, demonstrating how unification works in physics. Then see how Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism make a remarkable prediction. Whether you're an expert or a neophyte in whatever Physics topics we cover, it will be an interesting meeting for all. Come join us on the 2nd Friday of the month and share and discuss your Physics interest and knowledge and have fun while you do! Look forward to seeing you..and don’t forget the Afterwards!

What we're about

Whether you're an expert or a neophyte in whatever Physics topics we cover, it will be an interesting meeting for all. Come join us on the 2nd Friday of the month and share and discuss your Physics interest and knowledge and have fun while you do!

This is a gem of a Meetup and deserves more members. Whether you have a degree and/or an avid interest in Physics, or want to learn/share something new, come and join in the discussions about all things Physics with like-minded people for a couple of hours. You'll be surprised how interesting this is!

In other words, the group goal is to meet up with other local Physics enthusiasts and intellectuals to discuss theoretical physics fundamentals in order to obtain a deeper understanding of reality. Many new findings challenge the traditional understanding of the physical world. We hope the group interactions help everybody to obtain more profound insight into reality.

Which ever way you put it, this is the group to be in to share your enthusiasm and ideas about all things Physics!

..And after our meeting, those of us who wish to continue, will gather at a quiet local pub nearby. Hope you can join us there too!
