Lisa Randall - Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe

Wednesday, October 28, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The first tenured woman theoretical physicist at both MIT and Harvard, where she is currently the Frank J. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science, Randall is also adept at translating her complex field for a general audience—she has participated in The New Yorker festival, and written the bestselling Warped Passages and Knocking on Heaven’s Door. Her fourth book uses original research to propose that while a comet is the likely cause of the dinosaurs’ extinction some sixty-six million years ago, it was a band of dark matter that sent the comet hurling Earthward.
