« back to classes page

We will watch and discuss the six episodes of the Great courses entitled The Inexplicable Universe with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson reveals how cutting-edge technology enables modern scientists to explore the wonders of the universe as never before. These are eye-opening lectures that examine the great unknown: 1) History’s Mysteries: Better understanding with modern physics, 2) The Spooky Universe: Electrons have never actually been observed 3) Inexplicable Life: The origins of life in the universe, 4) Inexplicable Physics: Can string theory unify all the particles and forces of physics, 5) Inexplicable Space: Dark matter and dark energy, 6) Inexplicable Cosmos: Quantum foam, the multiverse, anti-matter, and tachyons. This will be a three-session study group (January 17, January 24, and February 7). We’ll listen and discuss two episodes in each session. Fasten your seat belts!
