Caleb Scharf - The Copernicus Complex: Our Cosmic Significance in a Universe of Planets and Probabilities

Monday, September 22, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

When Copernicus overthrew the Ptolemaic model of an Earth-centered cosmos, it was revolutionary. But as science has continued to discover new truths, it’s time to revise that Copernican universe. Scharf, director of the Columbia Astrobiology Center and author of Gravity’s Engines, updates the Copernican view with cutting-edge quantum mechanics and theories of the multiverse. We’ve come a long way since 1543. (Farrar, Straus and Giroux/Scientific American)
