Event Description

(Physics Lecture Series) Illinois State University, Department of Mathematics
“A Scientific Story: From Aristotle to Newton”

For more than 2000 years, physicists and astronomers were driven by some of the following basic questions. What is the distance to the Moon? What is the distance to the Sun? What is the circumference of the Earth? What is the orbit of Mars and other planets? Nowadays it is easy to answer these questions with the help of google. But for the ancients these were extremely difficult questions. The work done by many generations of scientists (from Aristotle to Newton) towards answering these questions fits into a beautiful scientific story that will be unveiled in this talk.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
