For millennia, people across the globe have searched the sky for answers. They have imagined and reimagined the cosmos, from an infinite and eternal backdrop full of other worlds, to a young Earth encircled by nearby planets and crystal spheres of stars. What is the relation between our lives here on Earth and the wider realm of nearby planets, distant stars, unfathomably faraway galaxies, and a potentially infinite universe—or swarm of universes? Where do we find, or create, meaning in such a picture?
Featuring: Minghui Hu (History) and Anthony Aguirre (Physics) Facilitated by: Nathaniel Deutsch (IHR Director)
Please join us for an evening of conversation and connection as we bring these questions down to earth and make the cosmos local.
