“Time, Einstein and the Coolest Stuff in the Universe”
October 20 @ 6:00 pm
Einstein changed the way we think about time. Now, the measurement of time is being revolutionized by the ability to cool a gas of atoms to temperatures millions of times lower than any naturally occurring temperature in the universe. Join us for a lively, demonstration-based and down-to-earth presentation about today’s hottest (and coolest) science.
