Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly 14 billion years ago expansion started. Wait ...
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries,
That all started with the big bang!
Stanford University physicist Dr. Tom Abel will give a free, illustrated, non-technical talk on "How Things in the Universe Came About and How They Ended Up Within Us" on Wednesday, April 6, at 7 p.m. in the Smithwick Theater at Foothill College, 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills.
Abel will discuss the early stages of the universe, using the latest computer animations of how the first stars formed and died, and how stars built up the first galaxies.
The event is free; parking is $3. Go to foothill.edu.
