Tune in this Sunday for a discussion about the very small and very large in our universe with two prominent physicists:

Keith Olive, Physicist at the U of M’s Theoretical Physics Institute, and Jim Peebles, Albert Einstein Professor of Science Emeritus, Princeton University will be guests on the show, broadcast live on AM 950 KTNF on Sunday at 9 to 10 AM central.

Professor Keith Olive is a distinguished McKnight University Professor at the University of Minnesota. His research areas are high energy physics and properties of matter. Joining us from Princeton University is Professor James Peebles, theoretical cosmologist. Professor Peebles has made many important contributions to the big bang model. With Robert Dicke he predicted the cosmic microwave background radiation. Professor Peebles lectured at the University this week at the Fine Theoretical Physics Institute.

We’ll be discussing the evolution of the universe, current theories about dark matter, and Keith’s specialty — supersymmetry. Will the Large Hadron Collider really find the Higgs Boson — and why do we care? And closer to home — the MINOS neutrino experiment in northern Minnesota.

Please join the discussion with your questions. Call the studio at 952-946-6205 or send an email to: radio@mnatheists.org
