How-Do-We-Know: Astrology, Astronomy, and Cosmology

Ron Garret

11 a.m., January 6, 2019

This is the second in a series of talks on the history of science and how we came to our present understanding of how our world works. This installment focuses on astronomy and cosmology, tracing the history of these fields from the ancient Greeks through to the recent discoveries of dark matter, dark energy, and gravitational waves.
