by Alan Stahler

Everywhere we look, we find the universe going downhill ... with one exception. That tiny, exceptional part of the universe is our own solar system, where life fights the downhill slide. Al Stahler will explore how life could come about in a universe that's falling apart ... and how we can search for life elsewhere.

Weird Science
by Dr Kurt Simon

There are several weird concepts that science has come up with to explain astronomical observations, including Cosmic Inflation, Dark Energy, Dark Matter, and Black Holes.

This presentation describes these theories and the evidence for them and then presents an alternative theory based on fundamental principles that avoids their counter-intuitive implications. This theory shows that the universe as a whole complies with the definition of a black hole and the mass in a black hole naturally goes to its radius, thus explaining dark energy and oddities about black holes. Come listen to Dr. Kurt Simon - be prepared to be surprised!
