A Cosmic View of the Human Future

Nancy Ellen Abrams, Lawyer; Author; Former Fulbright Scholar
Joel R. Primack, Distinguished Professor of Physics and Astronomy, UCSC

Modern cosmology, the study of the universe as a whole, now explains far more than just the Big Bang. It tells us that everything we can see – the stars, gas, even distant galaxies – is only a tiny fraction of what is actually out there. This lecture includes beautiful videos based on observations and supercomputer simulations. It seeks to make a connection between the new scientific cosmology and our human future.
