Humanity has been trying to understand the cosmos for centuries. Despite the advent of new means that help us peer further into time and distance than ever before, there is still much we have left to learn. Our speaker this month, Dr. Anthony Aguirre, is a theoretical cosmologist whose research is dedicated to answering some of these enduring mysteries. Please join us for an enthralling installment of virtual Café Scientifique on Thursday, May 20, 2021, as Dr. Aguirre discusses his work and takes us on a tour of the universe and our civilization – past, present, and future. Please register for the event at bit.ly/anthonyaguirre. To learn more about us, please visit our website at cafescipa.org or follow us on Twitter @cafescisv.
