Prof. Brian Schmidt
Hey! Do you live in or near Philadelphia? Are you interested in Cosmology? Do you want to hear a Nobel Laureate talk about his prize-winning work? Would you be willing to pay zero dollars for the privilege? Well have I got some good news for you.
On March 1, the Drexel University Department of Physics is hosting the 17th annual Kaczmarczik Lecture. Each year we invite a leading physicist, frequently a Nobel Prize Winner to give a public talk at the high school/nonmajor level.
This year, I’m pleased to announce that we’ll be bringing 2011 Nobel Laureate Brian Schmidt to campus. He’ll be talking about “The Accelerating Universe.” Registration is free, but make sure you sign up online so we know how many people are coming (and if you’re in high school, if your class will be participating in the physics department open house).
This is going to be an especially exciting talk, so I hope to see you all there.
