Krauss

The Purdue University Northwest Sinai Forum will feature theoretical physicist and bestselling author Lawrence Krauss at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, in the James B. Dworkin Student Services and Activities Complex on the PNW Westville Campus. Doors open at 3 p.m.

Krauss’s latest book is titled “The Greatest Story Ever Told – So Far.” He’ll relate the dramatic story of the discovery of the hidden world of reality and how humans find their place within it. A book signing will follow the program.

Krauss blends research and storytelling to explore and celebrate the greatest intellectual adventure ever undertaken – to understand why we are here in a universe where fact is stranger than fiction.

As director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University and foundation professor in the ASU School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Physics Department, he has investigated questions ranging from the nature of exploding stars to issues of the origin of all mass in the universe. He works to educate the public about science, ensure sound public policy and defend science against attacks at all levels.

Krauss’s previous books include “The Physics of Star Trek” and “A Universe from Nothing.”

A regular season ticket for the Sinai Forum series is $100. A patron season ticket is $225, and includes reserved section seating for these programs and exclusive receptions with the speakers before each program beginning at 2:30 p.m. Students who show a valid high school or university ID may attend at no cost.
