Canadian Astrophysicist To Speak On Cosmos

Author: Author unknown, Issue: September 1996, Topic: Events, Speeches

Dr. Hugh Ross, noted author and speaker, will be visiting Tsukuba in early October, and will be giving a lecture on Sunday, October 6 entitled "THE NEW COSMOLOGY: WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE LATEST ASTRONOMICAL FINDINGS?"

Topics he will touch on include:
"The 'Big Bang': How it all got started",
"Life on Mars? What does the meteorite evidence really mean?" and
"Are we alone in the universe? What are the probabilities?"

The latest discoveries by the Hubble Space Telescope and other new super telescopes are truly mind boggling. Astronomers can literally look back in time to very close to the beginning of it all. The more we learn, the more sense of wonder and awe there is. So come join a fascinating encounter with a noted astronomer. The lecture and Q&A session will be translated into Japanese, so bring your Japanese friends.


The Tsukuba Information Center is located in the Tsukuba Center Building next to Nova Hall.


Dr. Ross earned his Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Toronto and for several years worked as a research fellow at Caltech focusing on pulsars and galaxies. He has authored popular books on the implications of the newest findings, including "The Fingerprint Of God", "The Creator And The Cosmos", and "Beyond The Cosmos." and he has lectured in numerous settings around the world.
