Event Description
Abstract: Why are atoms stable? What caused galaxies, stars and planets to form? I will explain why quantum physics is crucial for explaining both. Finally, I will discuss the experimental evidence that assures us that everything in our universe originated from quantum fluctuations. This Public Lecture supported by The William A. Kuncik '75 and Cheryl A. LaFleur '75 Endowment for Princeton Center for Theoretical Science
