Dr. Ethan Siegel to discuss the origins of the universe

Centralia College welcomes theoretical astrophysicist Dr. Ethan Siegel to campus for a free lecture on the Fate of the Universe at noon Friday, May 20, in the Walton Science Center room 121.

Siegel writes a popular science blog, Starts with a Bang, and is a regular contributor to Forbes. He is the author of Beyond the Galaxy: How Humanity Looked Beyond our Milky Way and Discovered the Entire Universe. He teaches physics and astronomy at Lewis and Clark College in Portland.

Siegel will discuss the origins of the universe and take listeners far into the future.

“The earth has been around for 4.5 billion years, and the universe has been around more than three times that,” Siegel that. “Although we emerged from a hot, dense, uniform state to arrive at the planets, stars, and galaxies found today, none of this will stick around forever.”

A reception will follow the lecture. Refreshments will be provided.

Siegel’s presentation is part of the Rising Tide Science Seminar at Centralia College, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Centralia College Foundation.

  1. From my point of view space&time is energy field which is changed from this what was before it as interaction of other fields of energies. When you see metal have no electricity in itself before it meets magnetic field. So here what we have today it is just evolution what was before. So I do not believe in big bang theory.
