When: Thu., Feb. 2, 7:30 p.m. 2012

"My research focuses on the application of modern ideas in elementary-particle theory to cosmology and astrophysics." So says University of Chicago professor and theoretical astrophysicist Michael S. Turner, the man who coined the term "dark energy," referring to that which supposedly comprises two-thirds of the universe. Hear him deliver "Dark Side of the Universe: Beyond Stars and the Starstuff We Are Made Of" for free at 7:30 tonight in Colorado College's Packard Hall (5 W. Cache la Poudre St., coloradocollege.edu). Note that I made no Star Wars or Pink Floyd references. You're welcome. — Matthew Schniper
