Sean is a renowned cosmologist who has been featured on television shows such as The Colbert Report, National Geographic’s Known Universe, and Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman.
Human beings are made from the same particles and forces that make up rocks and rivers and planets. But the world as described by science, from quantum uncertainty to the genetic code and the expansion of the universe, can seem exotic and alien to us. Sean explores how our human-sized world fits into the bigger picture defined by the underlying laws of nature – in particular, how our impressions of cause and effect and the appearance of complex structures can be traced to special conditions near the Big Bang – and what it implies for meaning and matter in the universe.
This event is free and open to the public.
