Join us at 7 pm on Tuesday, January 28, for a lecture by Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum President Florian M Ptak on Parallel Universes. He will discuss current thinking of theoretical and cosmological physicists about the possibility that the universe consists of more than one of what is conventionally thought to be our universe.
Ptak is an electrical engineer with an engineering degree from the University of Connecticut. He was employed by various industries for over 35 years as a hardware and software design engineer. He has been interested in scientific subjects since he was a teenager and enjoys lecturing on popular scientific topics, having addressed groups as diverse as the student body at Berkshire Community College, members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum. Ptak authored a popular column on science magazines for the Berkshire Eagle for 15 years.
This talk on Parallel Universes will be readily accessible to the layperson: no in-depth math or science background is required.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum, with over 75 years of service to Pittsfield’s public library.
