'Rethinking Reality' Lecture Series

January 30, 2017 to March 06, 2017

At extremes of scale, speed and time, our perceptions of the world prove hard to reconcile with established physical law. Here, at the cutting edge of physics where we attempt to reconcile the bizarre domain of quantum mechanics with the cosmic vastness of relativity, we must increasingly rely on new ways of thinking, seeing and experimenting to probe the principles which underlie everything. Join us as five University of Arizona physicists explain their role as pioneers rethinking the rules of reality.
