Start Date/Time: September 11, 2020 - 7:30pm
End Date/Time: September 11, 2020

Albert Einstein spent the last decades of his life trying to work out a theory that would explain all known phenomena. He failed, but his vision has been pursued by generations of researchers and there have been many popular science books and articles that imply that such a theory could be right around the corner. In this talk, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln will explain the current status in this timeless quest and give the audience a sense of the prospects for completing Einstein’s dream, ending with an honest assessment of the likely timeline. Dr. Lincoln is a recipient of the 2013 Outreach Prize from the European Physical Society and the 2017 Gemant Award from the American Institute of Physics. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Registration required. Free.
