Abstract

Albert Einstein wrote that “The most beautiful experience we can
have is the mysterious.” In his talk, Dr. Epp will explore how the process of
science—wonder & curiosity coupled with imagination & reasoning—has led
to some of the greatest discoveries and deepest mysteries about the structure,
evolution and origin of the universe.  This
lecture will celebrate the power of science to deepen our sense of cosmic
wonder as we stand before the present-day mysteries of Dark Matter, Dark Energy
and the Big Bang.
