Sean Carroll, author of From Eternity to Here and Spacetime and Geometry, is speaking at UW-Madison tonight (Thursday, October 18th) from 7-8:30 pm at the Wisconsin Institutes of Discovery. Registration is required, so be sure to fill out the form as soon as possible. Carroll will be speaking about the scale of life and the evolution of the universe. You can find out more information about the talk here.
Addtionally, Carroll has a new book coming out in November called The Particle at the End of the Universe: How the Hunt for the Higgs Boson Leads Us to the Edge of a New World. We will be purchasing this book for the Physics Library as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can read a description of the books and some editorial reviews at Amazon.com.
