Tim Thompson to speak at the August SJAA meeting

Bob Havner


Houge Park meeting hall August 9, 2003, 8:00 p.m.



Tim Thompson of the Los Angeles Astronomical Society will be the guest speaker at the August 9 general meeting in his talk, Astrophysics, cosmology, and the age of the universe. He will be discussing the age of the universe as seen from 3 distinct points of view: (1) The astrophysics of stellar evolution, (2) the "classical" cosmology of the expanding universe, and (3) the "modern" cosmology of the cosmic background radiation. And how after nearly a century of tension, it now appears that all three of these independent approaches agree on an age for the universe of roughly 14 billion years.

Tim gave a very interesting talk to the SJAA last year on stellar evolution. Join us Aug. 9th to hear about his latest topic.
