Time and Eternity

The concept of time is foundational in science. We use it to measure change and to reflect upon our own existence. But what is time? And what is eternity? I will give an overview of our modern understanding of time -- its origin, direction, measurement, perspectives and destiny -- from a scientific viewpoint. Topics in cosmology, quantum physics, and relativity will be explored to highlight both the advancements and limitations in our knowledge of time.
