Science-on-Hudson: A Brief History of Chemistry in the Cosmos
The lectures are free. Register here. These talks are popular and space is limited, so we cannot accommodate anyone who does not register in advance.
Come travel down the cosmic chemical pathway from the Big Bang to the formation of stars and to life as we know it. Our chemical studies have advanced understanding how the first stars formed and how the raw materials needed for life were first synthesized.
Join me as I hop, skip, and jump my way across cosmic time and explain key chemical processes along the way.
After the lecture there will be star gazing hosted by astronomers from the Columbia Astronomy Public Outreach Program (weather permitting).
Welcome to our public lecture series, held at 7PM every second Thursday of the month during the school year. Our own Columbia University physicists and scientists will present an overview of the international and local experiments that our world-renowned research teams are working on: Big bang cosmology, dark matter, neutrino physics, particle colliders, biophysics, astrophysics; we’ll cover them all!
Everyone is welcome. These talks are intended for a general audience. Lectures last approximately 60 minutes with time afterwards for questions/answers and discussions.
Refreshments will be served prior to each event.
The lectures are free. Registration is required. These talks are popular and space is limited, so we cannot accommodate anyone who does not register in advance.
