December 14 meeting features talk on cosmology

Glenn StarkmanDecember 14: The December 14 meeting of the Cuyahoga Astronomical Association (CAA) will feature a fascinating talk on cosmology, rounding out this most unusual year for the club. COVID-19 isolation restrictions on group gatherings, and closed meeting facilities caused the club to take its meetings online via the Zoom cloud service. Normally the club hosts a December dinner in lieu of a year-end meeting but since the dinner cannot be held, there will be a December “virtual” meeting complete with speaker.

Professor Glenn Starkman, co-chair of physics and astronomy at Case Western Reserve University will present “The Big Bang and Beyond.” Dr. Starkman will take us to the beginnings of space and time, and show us what we know, what we think we know, and what we wish we knew. Attendees may join the Zoom meeting beginning at 7:20 p.m. the nights of CAA scheduled meetings and meetings begin at 7:30.

The evening will begin with introductions and the featured speaker followed by the monthly membership business meeting, typically concluding at about 9 PM. Guest attendees are welcome.
