Dear SPS member,
In anticipation of the upcoming American Physical Society's (APS) April meeting (this year, held January 28-31), the National SPS Office would like to invite SPS members in close proximity to the Washington, D.C. metro area to a free public lecture. This lecture, entitled “From Mars to the Multiverse,” is presented by Lord Martin Rees of the University of Cambridge and will be held on Saturday, January 28 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm at the Marriott Wardman Park, Ballroom Salon 2/3.
Martin Rees is a cosmologist and space scientist. His research interests include galaxy formation, active galactic nuclei, black holes, gamma-ray bursts, and more speculative aspects of cosmology. During the lecture, Rees will discuss questions, such as: What does the long-range future hold? Should we be surprised that the physical laws permitted the emergence of complexity? Is physical reality even more extensive than the domain that our telescope can probe? Are there many big bangs?
This lecture is FREE and open to the public. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Click below to learn more about the public lecture.
Registration for the entire APS April meeting is still open. Click below to:
