Cosmic Catastrophes: Apocalypse When?

Date: 02/21/2012

Time: 7:00 PM

Location: Bryant Lake Bowl, Minneapolis

Cost: $5-12, Tickets available at the door and online (www.brownpapertickets.com)

Description:

Life manages to survive under a wide range of conditions, but it also lives under constant threat from all manner of events in the vast universe. Professor Lawrence Rudnick will describe a variety of ways our world could end – from asteroid impacts to rogue black holes, and whether the universe itself might have prevented us from ever existing. You may lose some sleep after this Cafe— not from fear but from the amazing perspectives we gain on humanity when we think BIG.

Professor Rudnick is a UMN observational astrophysicist, studying both supernova remnants and large-scale structures in the Universe. He was a founding member of the Minnesota Planetarium Society, which has now transferred its assets to the Bell Museum to provide astronomy and space education across Minnesota. He is a past recipient of the Morse-Alumni Award for Outstanding Contributions to Undergraduate Education and the Outstanding Community Service awards at the University of Minnesota.
