The Stuff of the Universe (Tuesdays, 9:00am-11:00am)   NEW!

This course will continue our ongoing discussion of some of the big ideas and fundamental unanswered questions of today’s physics. After having discussed neutrinos last year, we’ll address the question of the composition of the universe: matter, antimatter, energy. One of the unanswered questions is, ”Why is there more matter than antimatter in the universe,” and another is, “What is the origin of the elements?” We’ll talk about what we know about this, what we do not know, and what we are doing to learn more. Selection of topics and extent of coverage may change depending on class reaction and interest, new things happening between now and then, and imponderables….

Maximum Class Size: 110.
