Physicist Lawrence M. Krauss on “The Greatest Story Ever Told — So Far”
- This event has passed.
In this talk based on his new book, The Greatest Story Ever Told — So Far: Why Are We Here?, renowned theoretical physicist Lawrence M. Krauss tells the dramatic story of the discovery of the hidden world of reality and how we find our place within it. Reality is not what we think or sense — it’s weird, wild, and counterintuitive; it’s hidden beneath everyday experience; and its inner workings seem even stranger than the idea that something can come from nothing.
A reception will follow the talk. Copies of the book will be available on-site from NC State Bookstores for purchase and signing.
Krauss is the director of the Origins Project and Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Physics Department at Arizona State University.
