Big Bang Science Day at COSI
"Confirmed Truths and Remaining Mysteries Regarding the Origin of the Universe"
- Lloyd Knox
Professor of Physics at UC Davis
- Sunday February 23, 2014
COSI - Center of Science and Industry, 333 West Broad Street
3pm - 4pm : Lecture with Dr. Knox in COSI's Extreme Screen Theatre
- 4pm - 5pm : Big Bang Science Day in COSI's Atrium
It all started with a Big Bang. The Universe was once filled with hot, dense matter, smoothly distributed across a rapidly expanding space. Professor Lloyd Knox will trace the history of this "Big Bang" picture of our origins, clarifying its observational successes and highlighting the remaining questions that drive us toward deeper exploration.
Meet the speaker and scientists from the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics at The Ohio State University. Ask questions about the universe and its amazing contents, hear about exciting research being done at The Ohio State University, and find ways to further your interests in science.
Lloyd Knox is a Professor of Physics at the University of California at Davis. He is leading the U.S. component of the effort to determine the basic parameters of the cosmos from the data acquired by the Planck satellite, which was launched in 2009. He is well known as an excellent speaker for both scientific and public audiences.
Both events are free, open to all, and targeted to be interesting to broad audiences. Admission to other COSI exhibits and parking are not included.
See COSI's event page for further details.

CCAPP is proud to present the Annual R. Jack and Forest Lynn Biard Cosmology and Astrophysics Lecture, the annual series of public lectures which is supported by a generous gift from Captain Forrest R. Biard, U.S. Navy, Ret., a 1953 MS recipient from the Ohio State University. The Biard Lecture will form the cornerstone of CCAPP's outreach effort, bringing forefront research in cosmology and astrophysics to OSU's undergraduates, the University community, and the general public.
