General Meeting (Public Welcome)

This is the regular monthly meeting of the Delaware Valley Amateur Astronomers, held in the Radnorshire Room at the Radnor Community Building.  The meeting is open to DVAA members and the public.  We start with a short business meeting focusing on announcements and upcoming events, followed by a featured presentation.  We gather beginning at 7pm; the program and the livestream begin at 7:30pm.

The meeting will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel beginning at 7:30pm.   

Featured presentation:  Dr. Paul Halpern of St. Joseph's University, on his latest book "The Allure of the Multiverse -- Extra Dimensions, Other Worlds, and Parallel Universes"

 

Given the extent of the observable universe that has yet to be mapped out, some might wonder why some physicists have introduced the concept of a multiverse into their models.  This talk will examine why some eminent physicists, such as the late Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg, have been attracted to the idea of the multiverse, and others, such as Princeton cosmologist Paul Steinhardt, have raised significant concerns.  We’ll also show how the cultural and scientific ideas of multiverses differ significantly.
