Cosmology Interest Group

The Cosmology Interest Group is a sub-group of the Lincoln Hills
Astronomy Group.
We meet to
to provide a forum for learning and discussing
cosmology, the study of the origin, characteristics, and fate of
the
universe or universes. The CIG provides an excellent
opportunity for those who
have an interest in astronomy/cosmology
to learn about, as well as to meet and discuss ideas
with others having
like interests. Mathematics is purposely minimized and is not
required
to understand the concepts.


We usually meet on the third Monday of the month
in the OC Fine Arts room 6:45 PM, but be sure
to check the schedule below for any changes or additions

 

Don Wilson continues our Cosmological lecture series,
presenting a series entitled
"Demarcation Wars: Draining the Big Bang 'Swamp' and the 2nd Copernicus Revolution." 

In May, Don will present           
Lecture #9 Graviton Discovery - Really, Really Huge
and
Lecture #10 
New Law of Gravity

 Don examines alternate theories to the Big Bang and explores how scientists can come up with entirely different conclusions after examining the same data, as well as alternate theories to the Big Bang Theory.
