Rethinking Reality

2017 UA College of Science Lecture Series

UA Science Lecture Series: Rethinking Reality hero The University of Arizona College of Science presents "Rethinking Reality," a series of 5 lectures exploring our world and ourselves. AZPM will livestream these lectures Mondays at 7 p.m. from Jan 30 - Mar 6, 2017. (PHOTO: UA College of Science)

Our intuitive understanding of reality comes from what we see and experience, but modern physics tells us that our world is actually stranger than the one we see, hear and touch every day. At extremes of scale, speed and time, our perceptions of the world prove hard to reconcile with established physical law. Here, at the cutting edge of physics where we attempt to reconcile the bizarre domain of quantum mechanics with the cosmic vastness of relativity, we must increasingly rely on new ways of thinking, seeing and experimenting to probe the principles which underlie everything.

Join us as five University of Arizona physicists explain their role as pioneers rethinking the rules of reality. Learn more at uascience.org
