Upper School Faculty Lecture On "Our Place In The Cosmos"
Posted 11/14/2018 02:15PM

In this week's lecture on "Measuring Meaning with Scale and Context", Mr. Klotz discussed our place in the Universe, in both spatial and temporal contexts. The lecture started by ranging over the spatial scale from microscopic to macroscopic, with a discussion of the origin and ultimate fate of the very atoms we are made of. Participants examined the earth in the context of the sizes of other astronomical objects, and in the context of the origin, evolution, and fate of the Universe. The lecture finished with a discussion of life in the Universe, including the likelihood of life existing elsewhere and the many fine-tuned preconditions without which life on earth – or anywhere – would not be possible.
