DESCRIPTION:Math Encounters:\n \n "\;The Structure of Spac
e: Measuring the Shape of the Universe"\; with
David Spergel\n \n Wednesday\, July 7 at 4:00 pm
ET (New York)\n \n In person!\n \n Is the universe
infinite or finite? \; Will it expand forever
or collapse in a hot Big Crunch? \; And what
is its shape? \; Join David Spergel\, Director
of the Center for Computational Astrophysics\, Fl
atiron Institute\, as he introduces geometry and t
opology\, the mathematical concepts used to answer
these questions. \; Learn how observations of
the microwave background (the leftover heat from
the Big Bang) have revealed the universe&rsquo\;s
shape and can help predict its destiny.\n \n Speci
al introduction by Janna Levin\, Claire Tow Profes
sor of Physics and Astronomy at Barnard College of
Columbia University.\n \n This event will take pl
ace in person at MoMath at 11 East 26th Street.\n
