85 Queen: Where Did the Universe Come From? (VIRTUAL)

September 21, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Over the last few centuries, humans have successfully unraveled much of the language of the universe, exploring and defining formerly mysterious phenomena such as electricity, magnetism, and matter through the beauty of mathematics.

But some secrets remain beyond our realm of understanding–and seemingly beyond the very laws and theories we have relied on to make sense of the universe we inhabit.

It is clear that the quantum, the world of atoms and electrons, is entwined with the cosmos, a universe of trillions of stars and galaxies…but exactly how these two extremes of human understanding interact remains a mystery.

Where Did the Universe Come From? And Other Cosmic Questions allows readers to eavesdrop on a conversation between award-winning physicists Chris Ferrie and Geraint F. Lewis as they examine the universe through the two unifying and yet often contradictory lenses of classical physics and quantum mechanics.
