“Our intuitive understanding of reality comes from what we see and experience, but modern physics tells us that our world is actually stranger than the one we see, hear and touch every day. At extremes of scale, speed and time, our perceptions of the world prove hard to reconcile with established physical law. Here, at the cutting edge of physics where we attempt to reconcile the bizarre domain of quantum mechanics with the cosmic vastness of relativity, we must increasingly rely on new ways of thinking, seeing and experimenting to probe the principles which underlie everything. Join us as five University of Arizona physicists explain their role as pioneers rethinking the rules of reality.”
at UA Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Way (east of Park Ave.), Mondays at 7 p.m. for 5 weeks (except Feb. 20).
