Wednesday, April 9, 2008 4:00 PM
Cost: Free! Refreshments will be served.
Room 125
Nolte Center for Continuing Education
Minneapolis Campus

This talk will explore the empty spaces in the universe, and what they teach us about its origins and evolution, from the big bang 13.7 billion years ago, to the present-day birth of new stars and planets. Professor Rudnick will recount his team's recent discovery of a billion light-year void and some of the bizarre time- and space-bending alternatives suggested by cosmologists.
