Dunlap Institute: Cosmos From Your Couch - Misconceptions about the Universe: From Everyday Life to the Big Bang (ONLINE)

Cosmos From Your Couch
Tuesday, August 11, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Misconceptions are deeply-held beliefs which are incorrect. People have misconceptions about the most basic of astronomical topics, such as the cause of the seasons. In this profusely-illustrated, non-technical presentation, Dr. John Percy will gently correct these “heavenly errors,” from everyday life, to exotic black holes, to the birth of the universe, to beliefs about fringe topics. This presentation is especially relevant to teachers and their students, since almost all of the topics are on the school science curriculum.
