Dean's Scholars Honors Program presents Distinguished Lecture Series

The Student Events Center Events CoSponsorship Committee is proud to cosponsor Distinguished Lecture Series.

The Dean's Scholars Distinguished Lecture Series is proud to present renowned theoretical physicist and science popularizer Dr. Lawrence Krauss in a free public talk.

Join us as he explains how close physics has come to answering some of the universe's most fundamental questions, and even ask some questions of your own! Following his talk will be a Q&A session and a book signing.

Dr. Krauss will be speaking about his newest book, "A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing." In it, he explains how the staggeringly beautiful observations and predictions of modern physics suggest that not only CAN something arise from nothing, something WILL always arise from nothing.

Dr. Krauss is the Foundation Professor of the School of Earth and Space Exploration and director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University. An MIT graduate, he is a world leader in theoretical astrophysics and has published over 300 scientific papers in the field. He is the author of several acclaimed popular science books, including "The Physics of Star Trek," "Quantum Man," and the New York Times Bestseller "A Universe from Nothing." He frequently appears on national television shows such as the Colbert Report, Anderson Cooper 360 and Real Time with Bill Maher.
