You may recall Professor Brian Greene from his cameo role playing himself in the sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Described as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today” by the Washington Post, Professor Greene will be on the stage of our Robert H. Smith Auditorium this Wednesday, April 12, at 6:30 pm, exploring the past and the future of the cosmos from the big bang to the closest science can take us to the very end. I know you won’t want to miss this extraordinary opportunity, as Professor Greene, in conversation with journalist Faith Salie for our Reddoch Family Lecture on Science History, illuminates the most essential questions of human existence. I will hope to see you Wednesday evening—and on Monday and Tuesday evenings, as well, as our History with David Rubenstein series continues, featuring the interviewer extraordinaire in conversation with historians Leslie Harris and Candice Millard.
