January 2011 Science Under the Dome


Join us Friday, January 21st at 7:00 PM as WSU Physicist Professor David Cinabro presents:


                               The Golden Age of Cosmology


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.   



The Wayne State Planetarium is dedicated to the promotion of science, and more particularly Physics and Astronomy. We are proud to feature a new series of free public lectures covering modern topics in science.
