December 3, 2010

  • John Mather, 2006 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics
Recipient of the 2006 Nobel Prize in physics John Mather presents “From the Big Bang to the Nobel Prize and on to James Webb Space Telescope and the Discovery of Alien Life.” The history of the universe in a nutshell, from the Big Bang to now, and on to the future – John Mather will tell the story of how we got here, how the universe began with a Big Bang, how it could have produced an Earth where sentient beings can live, and how those beings are discovering their history.

Mather and George Smoot (University of California) won the 2006 Nobel Prize for physics for their collaborative work on understanding the Big Bang. Mather and Smoot analyzed data from NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE), which studied the pattern of radiation from the first few instants after the universe was formed.
