Join Lawrence Krauss for a 10-day cruise to Antarctica beginning on December 2, 2015.

10 days aboard the the beautiful Silver Explorer provides the perfect setting to explore questions ranging from the origin of the universe and life within it, to issues of climate change and our planet’s future as we discover one of the most exotic locations in the world, which also holds the key to these very questions.

Origins Project Director, Lawrence Krauss will lead a group of adventurers on trips throughout space and time as our ship explores the beauty of this southern continent. Topics covered will include science at the South Pole, what we are learning with today’s biggest telescopes, and what the Antarctic us telling us about climate change.

Lectures will include:

  • The Accelerating Universe: A Story of the Development of Cosmology
  • Astronomy and the Southern Sky
  • Journeying to the Beginning of Time in Antarctica
  • Climate Change From This End of the Earth as Seen by a Physicist

Lawrence will moderate a dialogue and question and answer sessions on aspects of their research and issues at the forefront of science.
