7:00 PM: We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe Despite many years of astounding progress, there remain basic questions that science has yet to answer: What is the Universe made of? How did the Universe begin? How will it end? Particle physicist Daniel Whiteson explains everything we DON'T know about the Universe, using cartoons, and clear explanations. This lecture is perfect for anyone who's curious about science and all the big questions we still haven't answered. No background knowledge is presumed.
