Sean Carroll at UWM Student Union Fireside Lounge
Please note - while advance sales for this event have ended, walk up tickets are available at the venue. Hope to see you tonight!

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee College of Letters and Science, Manfred Olson Planetarium, UWM Student Union, and Boswell Book Company present an evening with Sean Carroll, Theoretical Physicist at California Institute of Technology. Carroll will discuss his new book, "Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime."

General admission tickets for this talk are $30 and include the book and all taxes and fees, available at seancarrollmke.bpt.me. Specially priced tickets for UWM students, faculty, and staff are available at UWM Student Union Information Desk closer to the event date. The talk will be followed by a book signing.

In his latest book, Carroll takes on the holy grail of modern physics - reconciling quantum mechanics with Einstein's general relativity, his theory of curved spacetime. Carroll argues that the refusal to face up to the mysteries of quantum mechanics has blinded people, and that spacetime and gravity naturally emerge from a deeper reality called the wave function.

Publishers Weekly called "Something Deeply Hidden" "challenging" and "provocative," introducing readers to "some of the most groundbreaking ideas in physics today."

Carroll is author of The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself and other books and is host of the Mindscape podcast. This is a rare opportunity to hear one of our top scientists bringing to life one of the most important theories of the day. Join us today for this special event, also cosponsored by the UWM Planetarium Club.
