Griffith Observatory Offers: “About Time – Cosmology, Time and Culture at the Twilight of the Big Bang” Monday, January 30th 7:30pm
|January 30, 2012|
If cosmology is poised to reinvent itself beyond the Big Bang, then it can only mean that we are also poised to reinvent cultural time. There are two paired revolutions ongoing and we will watch them both unfold right before our eyes. Professor Adam Frank explores these new theories of cosmology on Monday Night January 30 at 7pm and shows how the most intimate of personal experience of time has always been wedded to a changing view of the cosmos. Crossing 50,000 years of cultural innovation, Frank shows how the human users of time have always been deeply connected to our conception of the Universe. From the invention of clocks in the 14th century to the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century to our own rapidly changing digital global village, our experience of time has always been paired with our ideas of cosmic time.

In addition: NIGHTTIME VIEWING: Telescopes
Each night at full dark the Observatory staffs the Zeiss Telescope on the roof. A Telescope Operator will position the telescope and describe all that is being seen through the lens of the “most looked-through telescope in the world”.
Many nights the Observatory also has telescopes on the Front Lawn which are staffed by the Observatory Telescope Operators. You will be able to talk to the telescope operators about what is in the sky and enjoy the view.
On any given night, Observatory staff may set up one or more free-standing telescopes on the lawn or East Observation Terrace to enable more people to put their eyeball to the sky.
