Expanding the Doors of Perception - An evening with Frank Wilczek
Thursday, March 27, 7:30 p.m.
Donald W. Reynolds Center, 3208 E. 8th Street
Frank Wilczek is a world-renowned theoretical physicist and mathematician and currently a professor at MIT. Adept at explaining scientific topics such as dark matter, string theory, and more recently the God particle, Wilczek was awarded a Nobel Prize for work he began when he was just 21. His television appearances include "ghostbusting" for Penn & Teller, who called Wilczek "the smartest guy we’ve ever had on the show." His latest book, The Lightness of Being: Mass, Ether, and the Unification of Forces, appeals to a wide audience and was lauded by one reviewer as "a lively, playful, and inventive tour de force."
