Abstract:

Albert Einstein wrote that “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.” In his talk, Dr. Epp will explore how the process of science—wonder & curiosity coupled with imagination & reasoning—has led to some of the greatest discoveries and deepest mysteries about the structure, evolution and origin of the universe.  This lecture will celebrate the power of science to deepen our sense of cosmic wonder as we stand before the present-day mysteries of Dark Matter, Dark Energy and the Big Bang.
