Join us for a free event welcoming Dr. Jim Peebles, the 2019 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics, back to Kingston and Canada. Light refreshments will be served from 6:45 with a collection of science and art displays and then Dr. Peebles will give an enlightening talk about our place in the expanding cosmos, and how we've come to understand that the Universe has this surprising behaviour.

Dr. James Peebles is the Albert Einstein Professor in Science, emeritus, at Princeton University. He is also a co-recipient of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology.

The George and Maureen Ewan Lecture series was endowed by Queen’s Physics Professor George Ewan and his wife Maureen in 2018 to support seminar and lecture programs designed to increase scientific discourse and culture within the Particle Astrophysics community at Queen’s University and the broader Kingston community.

This mask-friendly event is free and for all ages.
