Event Description
Lawrence Krauss with Alan Alda: Reality, the Real Story

Theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss has explained how the material universe could have risen from nothing. But now that it’s here, the reality hidden beneath everyday experience is even weirder, wilder, and more counterintuitive than its origins. Krauss takes to the Library stage to unpack our complex universe, which he also explores in his new book, The Greatest Story Ever Told...So Far—Why Are We Here? He is joined by Alan Alda who, since acting on M.A.S.H and The West Wing, has devoted much of his work to promoting the importance of scientific research.
