PNC Offers Discussion on String Theory
WESTVILLE – The Purdue University North Central Astronomy Club will host a presentation on String Theory by Dr. Aaron Warren, PNC assistant professor of Physics on Tuesday , April 5 at 11 a.m. in the Library-Student-Faculty Assembly Hall, Room 02. The event is free and open to the public.
Area teachers are welcome to bring their students for this informative, thought-provoking talk. There will be time for discussion and questions and answers.
String Theory is attempts to answer the questions “Where did we and the world come from?” and “What is the world made of?”
String Theory has been called a “Theory of Everything.” In the last few decades it has emerged as the most promising candidate for a microscopic theory of gravity. In addition, it attempts to provide a complete, unified and consistent description of the fundamental structure of our universe.
The Astronomy Club at Purdue North Central is a new club that started in the fall semester of 2010. It welcomes persons of all interests who have a little curiosity about Astronomy. The club holds talks on current events of what is happening in the Astronomy field. Members are planning observing nights, using the high power telescope to view the night sky. Its first observing night will be April 29. That event will be open to the public and will be of interest to all ages to gaze at the planets and constellations.
Additional information about this event or upcoming events may be obtained by contacting Dr. Aaron Warren by phone at (219) 785-5659 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org . Persons with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Warren .
