TU Science Café to focus on cosmology

The next installment in Thomas University’s popular Science Café series will feature Dr. Harrison Prosper presenting “Cosmology, a Brief History of Everything” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 28. Prosper is the Kirby W. Kemper Professor of Physics and a Distinguished Research Professor at Florida State University.

According to NASA, cosmology is “the scientific study of the large scale properties of the universe as a whole. It endeavors to use the scientific method to understand the origin, evolution and ultimate fate of the entire universe.”

Prosper holds a Ph.D. in High Energy Physics from the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom. He completed post-doctoral work at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the United Kingdom, Virginia Tech and the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois. Prosper joined Florida State University in 1993.

A reception will be held before the Science Café from 6 to 6:30 p.m. in the lobby of Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus. The presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall.

Presented by the TU Division of Education, there is no admission charge for the Science Café. For more information, contact April Penton at apenton@thomasu.edu.
