WHAT: Fascinating discussion on the architecture of our cosmos with a top cosmologist
WHEN: Thursday, October 11, 2018 @ 12noon
WHERE: The Arts & Letters Club, 14 Elm Street, Toronto
The Arts & Letters Club invites Harvard Club of Toronto Members to meet a distinguished alum J. Richard Gott III. He will give a fascinating insider's account of how a generation of undaunted theorists and observers solved the mystery of the architecture of the cosmos.
One of the world's foremost cosmologists, Richard Gott was among the first to propose that our universe is constructed like a sponge made up of clusters of galaxies intricately connected by filaments of galaxies. The "cosmic web" theory has since been confirmed by other scientists and mapped extensively by teams of astronomers.
Richard Gott is the author of several books on the cosmos including most recently Welcome to the Universe with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and The Cosmic Web: Mysterious architecture of the Universe.
Tickets: $22.75 each can be purchased by calling 416-597-0223, ext 3 and mention that you are a member of the Harvard Club of Toronto.
