May 2015 Speaker: Dr. Levon Pogosian

levon Pogosian

Dr. Levon Pogosian from Simon Fraser University will be speaking at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre at 5714 Medusa St, Sechelt, at 7:30 PM on 8 May, 2015. His topic will be “From Static to Expanding to Accelerating: the past 100 years and the next 20”. Not only the universe is expanding, it is doing so at an accelerating rate. The physics causing the acceleration is currently unknown, but upcoming astronomical surveys of large scale structure will dramatically improve our ability to narrow the pool of possibilities. The lecture will review the history leading to the astounding discovery of cosmic acceleration in 1998 and the challenges that cosmologists are addressing today.

Admission is by donation.
