Physics Lecture Tackles ‘Big Bang Machine’ Studies

This week’s Saturday Morning Physics lecture will feature Professor Stefan Spanier talking about “The Big Bang Machine.”

The lecture will discuss the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, and how it has enabled physicists to study fundamental laws of nature. Spanier will link the studies of this machine to our current understanding of the Big Bang Theory and the implications it has on future research.

The lecture will be held from 10 to 11:15 a.m. with questions and a discussion from 11:15 to noon. The event will be held in 307 Science and Engineering Research Facility (SERF), 1414 Circle Drive. Limited parking will be available in the 11th Street Garage.
