LukeBarnes – A Fortunate Universe

Luke BarnesPostdoctoral Researcher, Sydney Institute for Astronomy, University of Sydney
Luke A. Barnes is a postdoctoral researcher at the Sydney Institute for Astronomy, University of Sydney. His university medal from the University of Sydney helped him earn a scholarship to complete a Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge. He has published papers in the field of galaxy formation and on the fine-tuning of the Universe for life.

A Fortunate Universe is available where all good books are sold, or visit Cambridge.org for more.

You don’t have to be a scientist to appreciate the beauty of the night sky, but there is much more to the Universe than its good looks. For scientists, the goal is to unveil the inner workings of nature, the rules and properties that dictate how the bits and pieces of the cosmos move and interact.

Sydney University Astrophysicist Dr Luke Barnes, co-author of A Fortunate Universe, will take us on a tour of the cosmos, from its smallest building blocks to its largest structures. Humanity, we will see, relies on a remarkable set of circumstances that allow us to ponder our place in space and time.

Join us on Wednesday March 15th from 7:30pm to hear the presentation and then we’ll open the floor up for a question and answer time when you can draw on Dr Barnes’ knowledge. It promises to be a great evening for all inquiring minds.
