EAC Discovery Park Campus presents:
“QUANTUM MECHANICS – Background for a physics revolution at the beginning of the 20th century” – by Hal Herbert.
Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018 – Discovery Park Campus – Jupiter Room 7:00pm
FREE Lecture! Enjoy the Galleries and star gazing afterward!
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.
Mr. Herbert’s first of six lectures will demonstrate the revolution that occurred when the scientific focus changed from the deterministic world of physics to a world of uncertainty. This occurred when scientists focused their attention on the atomic and subatomic world. Come enjoy an interesting evening of facts and thoughts of our deeply complex world – at an atomic and subatomic level – that surrounds us.
After the lecture you can tour through 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 Telescope in the Gov Aker Observatory will be open for viewing the night skies, all free of charge and minutes away from home.
