Lawrence Krauss, renowned theoretical physicist, author, and public intellectual, will speak on November 9th, 7 PM, at SOU's Rogue River Room of the Stevenson Union on fundamental questions such as, “How did the Universe Begin? How will it End? Are we Alone? Are there other Universes?” and other less grand but no less interesting questions such as “Do Black Holes Exist?” Dr. Krauss will outline how these questions are now accessible, at least in principle, to experiment and observation, and in some cases we have come very close to answering them.
Dr. Krauss will give a second lecture at 7 PM November 10th in Room 151 of SOU's Science Building, titled "The Greatest Story Ever Told...So far" in which he describes the scientific adventure from Plato through the discovery of the Higgs boson. It is a tale ripe with drama and surprise. and allows us to explore the hallmarks of what makes up good science and good scientific discoveries.
