Have you ever wondered about the past and future of the universe? You too could study it! It's called cosmology, and it has become a precision science in the last two decades. But this precision has revealed an amazing lack in our knowledge of the building blocks of the universe, 95% of which are a complete mystery. In order to have this discussion we need to describe the scientific method and apply it to the Big Bang model and the age of the Earth.

Come and listen to Steve Kuhlmann of Argonne National Laboratory as he talks about the Big Bang and dark energy. This adult program will take place Tuesday, May 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the Nichols Library Community Room.
