Join Paul Ricketts from the University of Utah's Physics and Astronomy Department for his presentation, "The Universe, All in One" at 8:30 pm on August 1, 2014 on  the visitor center patio.

Come explore the Universe and view into the windows of the past, present, and future. This presentation touches on the aspects of cosmology and how the universe may have started with the big bang, formed stars, galaxies, and black holes, and how it may potentially end. Paul will also talk briefly about what the Universe could actually be. Come with questions, leave with even more questions.

A question and answer session and telescopic sky viewing follows. Bring a chair, warm jacket and bug repellent. Binoculars and telescopes are optional but welcome. Star party ends at midnight.
