Begeman Lecture Series

Wed, 04/02/2014 - 7:00pm
Auditorium, Lang Hall
Dr. Timothy Gay, Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will present a lecture titled "Why Isn't God Ambidextrous?" Gay will discuss the idea of nature being "handed," and apply that handedness concept to agriculture, biology, chemistry and physics. He will also discuss new physics experiments on chirality that may reveal how life began on Earth.  Dr. Gay is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He is as well known for his groundbreaking research on atomic collisions and polarized electrons as he is for his entertaining expositions on the physics of football.
