WCA public lecture: Physics at the End of the Universe

Earth with a bright light just emerging behind it.

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.
