Richard Gott, professor of astrophysical sciences at Princeton, will speak on "The Geometry of Space" at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 2, in McDonnell Auditorium.
Gott's professional interests address problems related to general relativity and to the topology of large-scale structure in the universe. He has published numerous articles in professional journals as well as some in general-interest magazines, such as "Will We Travel Back or Forward in Time?" published last April in Time magazine.
The presentation, intended for a lay audience, is the last in the 2001 Evnin Lecture Series on "Space Exploration." It is sponsored by the Council on Science and Technology.
