Free Public Lecture and Reception
Lisa Randall, Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science, Department of Physics, Harvard University
How we look at things matters. Humans make sense of the world by experiencing it from different perspectives, whether understanding a detailed city map, or locating a constellation in the sky. But how do we deal with scales we cannot see? Lisa Randall will discuss how scientists think about scale when studying the cosmos–from the mysterious properties of dark matter to the depths of our universe and beyond.
