Sharon Forks Meeting Room Side B

The last century of scientific effort has completely revolutionized our understanding of the universe and we now know that the origin, structure, and dynamics of our universe are far more interesting than our ancestors could have imagined.

Sonny Mantry, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Physics at the University of North Georgia, explains how our vast observable universe containing trillions of galaxies formed in the Big Bang, a hot and dense primordial soup of elementary particles.

Dr. Mantry will describe how properties of these elementary particles are studied at particle colliders or atom smashers such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and how, coupled with gravity, they can help us understand the evolution of the universe from the moment of the Big Bang to the present. Learn more about matter and energy, why it’s so hard to study dark matter and dark energy, and the properties of the primordial light from the Big Bang still reaching our telescopes today.

This guest lecture is part of the Bugs, Brains, and the Big Bang for Busy Adults series. Adults and teens are welcome to attend this 45-minute seminar, followed by Q&A and current research efforts.
