Event Description

Full Description:
The question, 'Why is there something rather than nothing?' has been asked for millenia by people who speculate on the need for a creator of our Universe. Today, exciting scientific advances provide new insight into this cosmological mystery: Not only can something arise from nothing, something will always arise from nothing.

Lawrence Krauss will present a mind-bending trip back to the beginning of the beginning and the end of the end, reviewing the remarkable developments in cosmology and particle physics over the past 20 years that have revolutionized our picture of the origin of the universe, and of its future, and which have literally revolutionized our understanding of both nothing, and something. In the process, it has become clear that not only can our universe naturally arise from nothing, without supernatural shenanigans, but that it probably did.

Event registrations are now closed for this event as we have reached maximum capacity.
