Darwin Day Bagel Brunch

February 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

- $10

koldashJoin us for a delicious all-you-can-eat bagel brunch, with a talk by guest speaker Dr. Jeffrey Silverman on “Exploding Stars, Dark Energy, and the Runaway Universe.” Some of the most energetic and fascinating objects in the Universe are exploding stars known as supernova. Observations of distant supernova provided the first evidence that the expansion of the Universe is speeding up with time, rather than slowing down. This wholly unexpected phenomenon is likely due to a repulsive “dark energy” and has become one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in modern science. Before moving into the tech industry, Jeffrey earned his PhD at UC Berkeley working on exploding stars and dark energy with Prof. Alex Fillipenko, and was an NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at UT Austin.

Event hosted by Kol Hadash: Northern California Community for Humanistic Judaism.
