Jan. 7: Cosmic Wonder in Novato

Posted By on Wed, Jan 3, 2018 at 9:48 AM

Scientists at NASA and other space agencies have begun shedding new light on the mysteries of the universe by studying gravitational waves, actual ripples in spacetime that can only be created by immensely powerful forces of energy. By examining data from these waves, we can now “see” things like black holes, neutron stars and other space objects that are thought to have created heavy elements on earth and formed the Milky Way. This week, UC Berkeley astronomer Eliot Quataert geeks out about these far-out findings with a talk titled ‘Cosmic Gold’ on Sunday, Jan. 7, at HopMonk Tavern, 224 Vintage Way, Novato. 7pm. Free. 415.892.6200.
