Tuesdays: 11 a.m.-12:20 p.m.
8 Sessions: Jan. 15-Mar. 5
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Alex Beavers

Major discoveries in astronomy and physics over the last several decades have caused scientists to rethink how the cosmos really works. It seemed Newton explained things very well for the human scale. Then Einstein redefined space, time, and gravity for the scale of the universe. Then along came quantum mechanics that redefined matter at the subatomic scale. In recent years, we have learned that 95 percent of the universe is made of stuff (“dark energy” and “dark matter”) about which no one has a clue. Our universe is becoming “curiouser and curiouser” as Alice in Wonderland might say!
