The fundamental laws of the universe are not what we think or perceive—they are weird, wild, and counterintuitive. We all experience the world in a way that is shielded from the deeper realities underlying everyday phenomena. The story of scientist’s efforts to uncover these hidden realities involves the greatest intellectual journey ever taken by humans. A tale ripe with drama and surprise, it has implications for our understanding of space and time, our origins, and our future, ultimately addressing that fundamental question: Why are we here?

Join famed theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss for a journey through the unexpected fabric of reality, where fact is often stranger than fiction.

This lecture took place at the Hayden Planetarium on March 23, 2017.
