Webcast: Nobel Laureate on the History and Fate of the Universe, March 4th, 2008

Here's an announcement for the upcoming Honeywell-Nobel Initiative:

Honeywell will be presenting a Webcast – The History and Fate of the Universe – by Nobel Laureate Dr. George Smoot of the University of California, Berkeley. His talk will focus on the present status of cosmological observations and will make a forecast on things soon to come. It’s a big topic but one Dr. Smoot is well qualified to address.

In 1992, Smoot and his team detected and mapped tiny variations in the radiation from the early Big Bang. Gravity worked on these variations to grow the galaxies, clusters of galaxies and clusters of clusters that are found across the universe. For this work, Smoot was co-awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Smoot will be delivering this lecture to the students and faculty of the Government College of Engineering in Pune Maharashtra, India on March 4th. A live Webcast of his remarks, as well as related content, will be available for viewing from Honeywell Science.
