Galaxy Forum Canada – Vancouver: 2009 Paul Sykes Lecture in Astronomy
27 September 2009 (3:00pm) @ H.R. Macmillan Space Centre
A Galaxy Forum-related event, sponsored by ILOA and in partnership with the Vancouver Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and the H.R. Macmillan Space Centre.
Neil Turok, Director of Cosmology at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
Dr. Turok reveals two models: one in which the Universe began at the Bang, and the other in which the Bang was a violent event in a pre-existing Universe. The competition between these models lies at the heart of many deep questions about the Universe, and about our ultimate ability to understand it.
Dr. Turok has worked with Dr. Stephen Hawking and also founded the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. He co-authored the popular science book “Endless Universe: Beyond the Big Bang” with Princeton physicist Dr. Paul Steinhardt.
