Save the Dates!
The Physics Department is sponsoring two fantastic lectures this Spring, so mark your calendars now:
March 1 at 5 pm
The J. Robert Oppenheimer Lecture
A Lecture by Frank Wilczek
Nobel Laureate and the Herman Feshbach Professor of Physics at MIT
"Anticipating a New Golden Age"
Fundamental physics is poised to take a great leap forward in coming years. An extraordinary instrument - the Large Hadron Collider or LHC - will enable us to see whether some gorgeous ideas about the ultimate laws of physics describe reality correctly. Nature has given us hints: Is she teaching, or teasing? In a multimedia presentation including rap video, spectacular images, some amazing ideas, and a few jokes, I'll demonstrate why this is an especially exciting time to be a physicist - or a curious person.
