“Wandering planets, falling apples, whirling stars . . .”
So begins the intriguing title of an upcoming physics lecture at the University of Minnesota.
Helen Quinn, professor of physics at Stanford University and a recognized expert in theoretical high energy physics, is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 6, in Memorial Hall, McNamara Alumni Center, 200 Oak St. SE., Minneapolis. The event, hosted by the University’s William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute, is free and open to the public.
Oh, and the remainder of that title is “. . . How unraveling the mysteries of gravity has taught us about the universe.”
