This year's Nobel Prize in Physics celebrated major contributions to modern cosmology, including the Big Bang Theory and the abundance of Dark Matter in the Universe.  

In celebration of this recognition, the WSU Planetarium is delighted to host Wayne State Professor David Cinabro to present his lecture "Doomed, Insignificant, and Ignorant:  The Lessons of Modern Cosmology."  

This lecture will give guests an overview of modern scientific views of the universe, its origins, its habits, and the place of humanity within it.  

Science Under the Dome is a free public science lecture series held at the WSU Planetarium and sponsored by the Department of Physics & Astronomy.  Seating in the planetarium is limited, so an RSVP is required.
