Dietrich School Science Revealed Public Lecture Series "Nothingness: So much to talk about!"

This is a past event.

Words like “nothingness” and “empty space” may seem like simple concepts, referring to the complete absence of content. But in practice, these concepts have been topics of ongoing debate with important implications for our understanding of the universe.  This panel discussion and Q&A at this event, involving several leading Pitt experts as well as our distinguished visitor James Owen Weatherall (author of the popular book Void: The Strange Physics of Nothing), will reveal in publicly accessible terms some of the complications and interesting ideas that arise when we try to get a grip on…nothing.  What is (or is not) really out there? What are its properties? What shape does it take? Join us to find out a lot about nothing!

This event is presented in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh Center for Philosophy of Science and is free and open to the public.
