In Search of the True Universe with Martin Harwit

Monday, December 8, 2014



Astronomers are investigating the new frontiers of dark matter and dark energy, critical to understanding the cosmos but of indeterminate socio-economic promise. Astrophysicist and scholar Martin Harwit addresses these current challenges in view of competing national priorities and proposes alternative new approaches in search of the true Universe. Harwit examines how our understanding of the cosmos advanced rapidly during the twentieth century and identifies the factors contributing to this progress.

Harwit will sign copies of his book In Search of the True Universe—The Tools, Shaping and Cost of Cosmological Thought after the lecture.
