Physics is the study of matter and energy at all scales, from the sub-nuclear to the dimensions of the universe. It is the fundamental science — all other sciences and technologies rely on the principles of physics.
Physics involves observing and understanding natural phenomena. It is evident in the world around us in everything from the seasons, the motion of objects, the flight of birds, the night sky and the weather, to lasers, electronics and the technology we rely on today. Astronomy teaches you how to study objects at a distance and interpret the information gathered. This helps us begin to understand the universe we live in. The skills you will learn in astronomy are also applicable to remote sensing and its application to environmental problems.
POSTPONED: We have made the difficult decision to reschedule this talk until we can resume the PUBlic Professor Series in the format it was always intended, in person. We miss you and can't wait to see you again at the Sandman Signature Lethbridge Lodge to socialize and share while connecting with research experts across disciplines from the University of Lethbridge. Once the PUBlic Professor Series returns, talks will be delivered in person and live-streamed for those who cannot attend. Thank you for your continued support of the series.
