ADMISSION INFO

Join us for a special online public lecture (“Galileo and the Science Deniers”) on Thursday, October 1 at 7:00 pm featuring astrophysicist and best-selling author Dr. Mario Livio.

Dr. Livio presents a fresh biography of Galileo Galilei which puts his scientific discoveries in context. Disturbed by rampant science denial in America—and around the world—that has only intensified in recent years, Livio began researching the life, ideas, and actions of this brilliant man who encountered similar pressures centuries ago. The result is a biography filled with lessons relevant for today—whether with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic or climate change.

Dr. Livio will discuss a few of these topics in this free public lecture, delivered remotely as a live-streaming event for the UofSC campus and surrounding community.

For registration and event details, please visit http://event.sc.edu/galileo. Registered participants will receive an email prior to the event with information on how to connect to the live-streamed event.

Feel free to share this invitation with your family, friends, and colleagues. We look forward to your participation!
