Steven Weinberg. Texas Science Festival. Science for a changing world.Hear from one of the most revered scientific leaders of our time, Dr. Steven Weinberg, a theoretical physicist who holds the Josey Regental Chair in Science at The University of Texas at Austin. His contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles led him to receive the Nobel Prize in Physics, as well as 2020’s Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics. Dr. Weinberg’s research extends over many areas of theoretical physics, especially in the theory of elementary particles and in cosmology. Spend 45-minutes exploring open questions from his point of view and asking questions of your own. With introduction by Dean Paul Goldbart.
