The Future of Physics: Kate Lunau with Emerging Talent at Perimeter Institute
The late astronomer and science popularizer Carl Sagan once said: "The great discoveries are almost entirely made by youngsters." Sagan understood the power of youthful awe and curiosity, unbounded by established ways of thinking.
Exceptional young physicists will discuss what fascinates and motivates them during Perimeter Institute's public lecture – to be webcast live on April 2 at 7:00 pm EDT. A panel of top early-career Perimeter scientists, moderated by award-winning science journalist Kate Lunau, will share their unique perspectives on the big questions and discoveries they believe may shape the future.
Participants will walk the audience through the "typical" day of a theoretical physicist, describe the paths that brought them to Perimeter, and explore the unprecedented challenges and opportunities that face their generation – and the generations of scientists to follow – through the 21st century.
