UA Science Lecture Series – 'Understanding the Unseen Universe'

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 - 7:00pm

The UA College of Science presents the second of six free lectures as part of its annual lecture series. The 2019 series is titled "Searching for Certainty."

About the series:

We hold scientists in high regard as truth seekers and knowledge keepers. Their findings and research are independently checked, verified, proven and subjected to peer review. These processes and methods are applied rigorously and form a common framework for scientific inquiry. In this series of six lectures, scientists from across disciplines will shed light on how the scientific community works together to build consensus from evidence, mediates differences of opinion in the face of debate and ultimately establishes theory – scientific truth that grows and evolves over time. 

About the lecture:

In the series' second lecture, titled "Understanding the Unseen Universe," Feryal Özel, UA professor of astronomy and physics in the College of Science, will explore the concept that while astronomy is described as an observational science, throughout time it has constantly grappled with the unseen. How does astronomy address, and perhaps plan to overcome, this core tension?

Parking is available on a pay-per-use basis in the Tyndall Avenue Garage.
