The Hidden Reality
Wednesday, March 2; 7:00 p.m.
With Brian Greene, PhD, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University and bestselling author; in conversation with Amir D. Aczel, PhD, author of Fermat's Last Theorem and Present at the Creation. This presentation is part of the ongoing Lowell Series on Physics.
Current research rooted in quantum mechanics, cosmology, and string theory concurs that our universe is actually only one of many "bubbles" in a rapidly growing bath of universes. Hear what physicist Brian Greene has to say about the strange worlds of the "multiverse" in his new book The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos. Greene is recognized for groundbreaking discoveries in superstring theory and was called the "single best explainer of abstruse ideas in the world today" by the Washington Post. Journey with us to parallel universes, an adventure grounded firmly in science and limited only by our minds. Book signing to follow.
Advance registration for members begins February 9. Registration for the general public begins February 16.
More about this season of Adult Offerings at the Museum of Science:
This season, we rethink the world around us by examining our food system, the fundamentals of physics, and the nature of race in our society. In February we celebrate the opening of the renovated Charles Hayden Planetarium, now so technologically advanced that it transports visitors through the cosmos faster than the speed of light. venture with us into a new understanding of things great and small.
We are constantly adding to our seasonal lineup of special guest lectures, panel discussions, podcasts, social event, and more. To stay in touch with the latest Museum Happenings, visit mos.org/events.
The Museum takes a hands-on approach to science, engineering and technology, attracting about 1.5 million visitors a year via its programs and 700 interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, 3-D Digital Cinema and Butterfly Garden. Reaching 25,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. The Museum’s “Science Is an Activity” exhibit plan has been awarded many NSF grants and influenced science centers worldwide. Its National Center for Technological Literacy® aims to enhance knowledge of engineering and technology for people of all ages and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists. The Museum is ranked #3 by Parents Magazine in its list of the country’s “Ten Best Science Centers. For more information, visit mos.org.
