Course Description

In Mario Livio's new book of the same title, the author offers a fresh biography of Galileo Galilei, which puts his scientific discoveries in the context of today's knowledge.

Disturbed by rampant science denial in America-and around the world-that has only intensified in recent years, Dr Livio began researching the life, ideas, and actions of this brilliant man who encountered similar pressures centuries ago. The result is a fascinating biography filled with lessons relevant for today-whether with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic or climate change. Dr Livio will discuss several of these topics in this talk.
