Lawrence Krauss on Cosmic Connections @ Conway Hall / Sunday 16th October 2011

TIME AND PLACE

Doors: 11.15 am – 12.45pm

@ Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, WC1

“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust.”
-  Lawrence Krauss

Tickets £12.50

The School of Life

Professor of Earth and Space Exploration, Lawrence Krauss, isn’t immune to small irritations of daily living. However, he can see the bigger picture.

He’ll take to the pulpit to show how each of us is connected to the cosmos in ways we’d never imagine. From the stardust we’re made of, to the atoms we breathe, to the curving of space time that governs the way we make our way through traffic jams, to time travel itself.

Join for a surprising and thought-provoking lesson on what looking to the stars can teach us about ourselves.

Dr Lawrence Krauss is a prolific and popular writer and an indefatigable fighter for science and critical thinking. At Arizona State University, he is Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Physics Departments, Associate Director of the Beyond Center, and Co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative. He is also Director of the exciting new Origins Initiative, which explores questions ranging from the origin of the Universe to the origins of human culture and cognition. He has studied and explained matters from the microscopic to astronomical. In performing with the Cleveland Orchestra, judging at the Sundance Film Festival, and his Grammy nominated notes for Telarc Records, Krauss has also bridged the chasm between science and popular culture.
