The Great American Eclipse at Notre Dame

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Jordan Hall of Science

Solar Eclipse 250

On August 21, 2017, the shadow of the moon will draw a path across the continental United States, from Oregon to South Carolina. On campus we will see the moon obscure about 89% of the sun at maximum coverage. Join the College of Science and the Physics Department at the sundial in front of Jordan Hall of Science for a telescope's view of the eclipse, free eclipse viewing glasses (while supplies last) and a few experts to answer your questions about eclipses, the sun, and the days events.

Physics Colloquium/Miller Endowed Lecture: Prof. Rocky Kolb, University of Chicago

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
118 Nieuwland Science Hall

The big bang is a laboratory to explore the properties of particles that cannot be explored at terrestrial laboratories. In addition to thermal production of new particles, there is another source of cosmological particle production. In 1939 Edwin Schrödinger pointed out that particle-antiparticle pairs could be created merely by the violent expansion of space. The spontaneous appearance of particles from the vacuum so disturbed Schrödinger that he referred to it as an “alarming phenomenon.” The phenomenon is now thought to be the origin of density fluctuations produced in inflation as well as a background of gravitational waves. Gravitational particle production is a rich phenomenon, which continues to be explored.
