News of the Universe @ Harris Theater

Right now at the University of Chicago there’s a symposium for cosmologists, particle physicists, astrophysicists, and astronomers, who are doubtless discussing things beyond the comprehension of most of us. Tonight, though, the sponsors, along with the Illinois Humanities Council, are presenting a panel tailored for the general public. Up for discussion are extra dimensions, dark energy, and multiverses. (If you want to find out what these are, you’ll have to show up.) This event takes place at 7 PM and is free. The Harris Theater is at 205 E Randolph St, in Millennium Park. For more information, visit the website.
