Saturday, November 14 at 1 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Afraid of physics because the science seems so difficult? You likely won’t feel that way as you watch Jodi Cooley and Stephen Sekula explain the nature of gravity using the simple idea of a trampoline. Cooley and Sekula, who are both physics professors at SMU, have a knack for explaining complicated topics in fun, easy-to-understand ways. They’ll illustrate why objects in space such as planets or stars are attracted to one another. And why it is that we can “see” black holes, even though their pull of gravity is so strong that even light can’t escape it? Learn about these and other fascinating facts about our dark universe.
Age range: Middle-school, high-school and above.
All guests will receive event details at least 24 hours in advance.
