Horisonter er en felles forelesningsserie for ansatte og studenter ved Det matematisk-naturvitenskapelige fakultetet, og alle andre interesserte. Serien belyser store vitenskapelige spørsmål og utfordringer.
Professor Lawrence M. Krauss, Arizona State University, USA
Wednesday 10th of April at 15.00, Egget at Studentsenteret
"The question, "why is there something rather than nothing?" has been asked for millenia by people who speculate on the need for a creator of our Universe. Today, exciting scientific advances provide new insight into this cosmological mystery: Not only can something arise from nothing, something will always arise from nothing. Lawrence Krauss will present a mind-bending trip back to the beginning of the beginning and the end of the end, reviewing the remarkable developments in cosmology and particle physics over the past 20 years that have revolutionized our picture of the origin of the universe, and of its future, and which have literally revolutionized our understanding of both nothing, and something. In the process, it has become clear that not only can our universe naturally arise from nothing, without supernatural shenanigans, but that it probably did."
The event starts with a snack and refreshments in advance of the lecture that begins at 15.15.
The lecture is open to all. Welcome!
