The University of Missouri and the American Physical Society invite you to an open lecture by the renowned Dr. Edward "Rocky" Kolb, Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago.
Quantum laws rule the microscopic world. In the Big Bang era, our world was subatomic and governed by quantum phenomena which generated all the cosmic structures, from galaxies to light, around us today. This connection between the quantum and the cosmos may explain the nature of dark matter holding together our galaxy and the mysterious dark energy tearing apart our universe.
The Quantum and the Cosmos is free and open to the public.
Following the lecture, attendees may visit Laws Observatory.
