Dr. Fred Adams from the University of Michigan Physics Department, gave a talk at this meeting entitled “Into the Dark, The Long Term Fate of the Universe.” Professor Adams studies theoretical astrophysics at the University of Michigan. He specializes in star formation and cosmology, is the co-author of Five Ages of the Universe: Inside the Physics of Eternity (published 1999 by The Free Press, A Division of Simon & Schuster, Inc.) The talk given by Dr. Adams this evening covers essentially the same topics as this book.
He is also the author of Origins of Existence: How Life Emerged in the Universe (published 2002 by The Free Press, A Division of Simon & Schuster, Inc.)
The meeting was held in room 170. This room is larger than our usual meeting location, since we expected that Dr. Adams would attract a larger audience than we normally get. This photograph was taken shortly after the talk began.
After the talk, some Lowbrows posed with Dr. Adams.
