Science: Lisa Randall:
How Physics & Science Illuminate Us

The bestselling author of Warped Passages and one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World,” Harvard science Professor Lisa Randall, author of Knocking on Heaven’s Door, offers an overview of the latest ideas in physics and a rousing defense of the role of science in our lives. With insight into our scientific future, Randall touches on the biggest and most expensive machine ever built by mankind, the importance of science and rational thought, how the universe began –and how it might ultimately end. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.

Tickets are $5 at Brown Paper Tickets or 800/838-3006, or at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating.
