In Midtown: Physicist Brian Greene

February 28, 2015

Catch a lecture by preeminent physicist Dr. Brian Greene at Rhodes College.

March 5, as part of Rhodes College’s Communities in Conversation Series, Dr. Brian Greene, physicist and mathematician, will take the audience on a journey of the cosmos. Free and open to the public, his lecture “The Cosmos: From the Big Bang to the End of Time” begins at 6 p.m. in the McCallum Ballroom of the Bryan Campus Life Center on the Rhodes campus.

The Washington Post has called Greene “the single best explainer of abstruse scientific concepts in the world.” He is the bestselling author of The Fabric of the Cosmos (2005), The Hidden Reality (2011), and his breakout work, The Elegant Universe (1999). Dr. Greene is a professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, where he is co-founder and director of Columbia’s Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle Physics, a research center seeking string theory’s implications for theories of cosmology. String theory, many physicists believe, is the key to the unified field theory that eluded Albert Einstein for more than 30 years. Deftly uniting quantum mechanics and general relativity–the two pillars of modern physics, string theory declares that all of the wondrous happenings in the universe arise from the vibrations of one single entity: microscopically tiny loops of energy that lie deep within the heart of matter.
