The ultimate goal of physics is to invent a theory of everything, which explains all of creation from first principles.

In popularized science literature, one encounters speculative theories that might fit the bill (ideas like superstrings or an envisioned unification of known forces into a single underlying force). However, physics is an empirical science which needs verification and a credible path forward, and the energy scale at which a theory of everything is imagined to reign is a quadrillion times higher than can currently be tested in the laboratory.

In this lecture, Dr. Don Lincoln will give a realistic sense of the strides that research community is taking on this scientific journey. Dr. Don Lincoln is a particle physicist and senior scientist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Chicago Dr. Lincoln is the winner of the 2017 Andrew Gemant Award, an annual prize recognizing the significant contributions to the cultural, artistic or humanistic dimensions of physics by the American Institute of Physics (AIP).

This is your monthly chance to connect with other curious scientific minds and take part in an in-depth discussion about important scientific topics.

Our concession stand and a bar will offer snacks and drinks for purchase!
