Hear an interdisciplinary public discussion about Island Universe, a monumental work inspired by the origin of the universe.

Speakers for this case study include Susan Dackerman, John and Jill Freidenrich Director, Cantor Arts Center, and Andrei Linde, Professor of Physics, Stanford University. Professor Linde is one of the authors of inflationary theory and of the theory of an eternal inflationary multiverse. His work emphasizes the cosmological implications of string theory and supergravity.
