Fuel up your spaceship! Secret Science Club North presents Astrophysicist David Spergel, WEDNESDAY, June 13, 7:30PM @ Symphony Space

Grab your rocket pack and adjust your trajectory! Secret Science Club is traveling to the edge of time and space (Manhattan!) for a special edition.  

Wednesday, June 13, 7:30PM, Secret Science Club (North) presents Superstar Astrophysicist David Spergel @ Symphony Space, $25. (Use code SECRET15 to get $15 tickets.)

Astrophysicist David Spergel won the 2018 Breakthrough Prize for his work mapping the infant Universe. Observations of ancient light in the "Cosmic Microwave Background" produced the mind-boggling fact that the Universe is 13.8 billion years old and unveiled the reality that ordinary matter makes up a mere 5 percent of the cosmos. Now, David Spergel is looking to answer the next big questions: What happened in the moments just after the Big Bang? What is dark energy, the unseen force that seems to drive the expansion of the Universe?

Director of the Center for Computational Physics at the Flatiron Institute and professor of astronomy at Princeton University, David Spergel is currently co-chair of the science team for WFIRST, NASA's next major outer-space telescope mission. In addition to the Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics, Dr. Spergel received the MacArthur ("Genius") Award, NASA's exceptional service medal, the Dannie Heineman Prize for Astrophysics, and the Shaw Prize in Astronomy. He and his work have been featured in the New York Times, Scientific American, Wired, and beyond. He was named one of the "25 Most Influential People in Space" by Time magazine.
