Live Online! Tuesday, October 6 @ 8PM, Secret Science Club presents Astrophysicist & Author Katie Mack on “The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking)”

Everything you always wanted to know about the ultimate fate of the cosmos*
(*But were afraid to ask) 

We know the Universe had a spectacular beginning. It started with the Big Bang, and it expanded into an array of flaming stars, black holes, and whirling galaxies. But will there be an equally breathtaking end to this cosmic story? At the next Secret Science Club, astrophysicist Katie Mack embarks on a mind-bending tour of possible cosmic finales, including the "Big Crunch," "Heat Death," and the "Bounce" (gulp). Along the way, we detour into quantum mechanics, supernovas, and dark energy. Don’t miss this wildly fun ride to The End of Everything.

Join us live via Zoom on Tuesday, October 6 @ 8PM with Katie Mack, author of The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking)
"Doors" to the Zoom Room will open at 7:30PM (Eastern Time USA)
