The Universe Unrobed: A voyage Into the Stars, Fashion and Film

Sunday January 15th, 2017 - 7:00PM

Location : Under St Marks, New York, NY

What do we know about our universe and her birth? Actually, quite a lot. At laboratories like the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Lab, NY, and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, heavy atomic nuclei, like gold, can be smashed together with such extreme violence, that they melt into a cosmic soup mimicking the universe when it was a microsecond old.
These tiny specs of primordial soup are the hottest things ever made by humans, the most perfect liquids known in nature and when they cool they create the heaviest antimatter nuclei ever observed. Hottest, most perfect, heaviest... and they also give us a peak into the beginning of everything we know. And this epic endeavor of exploration has the ability to both reveal, and inspire.
