Then, November 17th our lecture is "Everything's Relative and Other Fables in Science and Technology"
Our November 17th speaker is Tony Rothman who is a cosmologist who studies the Big Bang and related events. He is interested in extremal black holes: black holes on the verge of becoming naked singularities, as well as on the detection of gravitons. His late father was Milton Rothman, who helped PhACT get started 11 years ago and also wrote much on Physics. Tony will speak on his latest book, "Everything's Relative and Other Fables in Science and TechnologyÃÂ". This book takes a closer look and corrects much common knowledge about key historical moments in science and technology and corrects myths. Tony is a professor of PhysicsÃÂ where Einstein used to teach at Princeton University.
Our Winter solstice party will be in Melrose Park 6:30 Dec 21.
