'Science on Tap'

"A Conversation With Paul Sorensen"

Presented by Paul Sorensen, Brookhaven Lab

Tuesday, April 5, 2016, 7:00 pm — Stony Brook Yacht Club

Paul Sorensen recreates the birth of the universe, smashing the nuclei of gold atoms together with such extreme violence that they melt into a cosmic soup that hasn't existed since the universe was a microsecond old. In conversation with Stony Brook University's journalism professor, Steven Reiner, Sorensen will bring to vivid life the epic endeavor to create in Brookhaven National Laboratory's atom smasher minute specks of the hottest matter ever made on Earth, and tell us what these fleeting fireballs may reveal about the origin of everything, including ourselves.

Hosted by: Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science
