The Mysteries of the Cosmos
The job of a scientist is to provide answers about the world, but asking questions is everyone’s job. And more often than not, the questions I’m asked by non-scientists are more intriguing and challenging than anything I might come up with myself.
This talk is about those questions. Questions that members of the public, friends, or even colleagues have asked me at one time or another.
There’s no such thing as a stupid question but there’s plenty of weird answers. To be fair, those are best ones to figure out.
When you start studying relativity, you don’t set out to find out what it would be like to jump into a black hole, so when you stumble upon the answer, you might get a bit dumbstruck by just how magnificent and terrifying the universe can really be.
So, if you are curious to hear answers to a wide array of cosmic questions, please join me at this talk. We will leave no planet and star unturned in our quest to uncover the mysteries of the universe. You’ll also get a chance to ask questions and I’ll try to answer them on the fly, and hopefully you’ll go home even more curious about the cosmos!
