Prominent cosmologist Wendy Freedman of the University of Chicago will come to Evanston next week to deliver the 9th annual public lecture of Northwestern University’s astrophysics unit at Cahn Auditorium.
Her lecture, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 5, is titled “The Unexpected Universe: Astronomical Telescopes Continue to Reveal New Surprises.”
It is the ninth public lecture of Northwestern’s Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics. The public is invited to attend at no charge.
Professor Freedman contends that new giant telescopes planned for the next decade are likely to reveal a number of surprises about space, revealing a universe that hardly resembles what we thought only a few decades ago.
She is expected to describe these exciting advances.
