Lee Smolin
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm

World renowned theoretical physicist and writer, Lee Smolin, and Globe and Mail staff science reporter, Ivan Semeniuk, discuss Smolin's latest book which suggests that the problems which have long plagued the field of quantum physics are a result of an incomplete Einstein theory.

Smolin takes us on a journey through the basics of quantum physics, introducing the stories of the experiments and figures that have transformed our understanding of the universe, illuminating the existing theories and guiding us towards a vision of the quantum that embraces common sense realism. Smolin's book brings us a step closer to resolving one of the greatest scientific controversies of our age.
