WCA public lecture: Physics at the End of the Universe

Join the Waterloo Centre for Astrophysics for a public lecture (offered in-person and online) as Dr. Katie Mack explores "Physics at the End of the Universe": The Big Bang theory tells the story of the beginning of the Universe, our cosmic home for the last 13.8 billion years. But how does the story end? I’ll share what modern astrophysics tells us about the ultimate fate of the cosmos, and what the catastrophic destruction of all reality would look like to anyone still around to see it.

As part of the Water Institute's WaterTalks lecture series, Dr. Patricia Chow-Fraser, Professor, Department of Biology, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, will present: Déjà vu or Jamais vu?  Using a 20-y record to discern how coastal wetlands of eastern and northern Georgian Bay respond to climate-induced water-level disturbances.
