Here is a sneak preview of this exciting lecture:

Professor Cinabro reviews our modern understanding of Cosmology, and the study of the origin and fate of the Universe. He will describe the pillars of the Big Bang model for the origin of the Universe, and highlight the rise of the dark sector with evidence that our Universe is dominated by the, as yet unconfirmed, dark matter and dark energy. "This leads to a possible, unfortunate fate for our Universe," says Professor Cinabro.            

Prof. Cinabro wears diffraction glasses, with his son Sergio, at the WSU planetarium.
