The Department of Physics and Earth Sciences and the Henry Whittemore Library presented the first installment of Science Café: The World is Ending, But Not in 2012! A talk by Professor Kristin Chon, Physics and Earth Sciences on September 21, Friday, 12:30 pm, at the Library Cafe.
What have people believed about the end of the world, from ancient times to the present? What about the recent, widespread fear that the world will end in December, 2012? Professor Chon spoke to this issue and initiated a discussion on what we know and how we know it.
