“Nine Crazy Ideas in Science” is the topic of the next Old Town Hall lecture tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. The event features a look at some current crazy ideas in science and how people can determine for themselves which might be true.

Robert Ehrlich, professor of physics and astronomy, presents the lecture. He has written or edited 15 books, including The Cosmological Milkshake and What if You Could Unscramble an Egg. Ehrlich has also written more than 60 articles on subjects such as particle physics, science education, and nuclear arms control. He is currently doing research on tachyons–hypothetical particles that travel faster than light.

The lecture is held on the second floor of Old Town Hall, at the corner of University Drive and Main Street in the City of Fairfax. It is free and open to the public, and refreshments are provided. Free parking is available in the lot on the corner of University Drive and North Street. For more information, call Traci Claar at x38846.
