The Peyton Nalle Rhodes Physics Lecture Series 

Nobel Laureate Dr. John C. Mather will outline the history of the universe from its early moments in the Big Bang to its possible end. He will illustrate with examples from NASA, including discoveries made with the Hubble telescope, and discuss plans for the new James Webb Space Telescope, planned for a 2019 launch. Within a few decades, we may know that life is common in the universe—or perhaps not.

There will be a reception and book signing following the lecture.
