“Quantum Mechanics – The atom and its Parts: What the Hadron is Going On?” by Harold Herbert
Saturday, March 9, 2019 7:00 – 8:00pm EAC Discovery Park Campus Jupiter Room
The EAC Discovery Park Campus welcomes Harold “Hal” Herbert, local historian and research volunteer of the Graham County Historical Society, sharing a six-part lecture series on the incredible world of quantum mechanics.
Quantum mechanics is the body of scientific laws that describe the erratic behavior of photons, electrons and the other particles that make up the universe. It results in what may appear to be some very strange conclusions about the physical world.
Mr. Herbert will discuss how the world of Quantum Mechanics has shifted from theory to particle physics, and how the world’s attention is now on the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, and on the cosmos around us.
The public is invited to attend this interesting evening of facts and thoughts about our deeply complex world at the atomic and subatomic levels that surrounds us! After the lecture don’t forget to visit the Graham County Historical Society’s artifacts display and the “History of Astronomy” in the Discovery Park Galleries, and take a ride on the Polaris Shuttle Simulator! Plus, the 20″ Tinsley Teleschope in the Gov Aker Observatory will be open for viewing the night skies, all free of charge and minutes away from home.
