Harvard professor Lisa Randall is a theoretical physicist, a leading expert on particle physics and cosmology, and the author of endlessly thought-provoking books like Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universes's Hidden Dimensions and Knocking on Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World. Heady stuff! And yet Randall's works are filled with an accessible and engaging interplay between the provocative theoretical world of scientific thinking and our normal, everyday lives. Now she comes to the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco to discuss her latest book: Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe. Exploring the consequences of the comet that killed the dinosaurs, Randall postulates other possible missing elements, illustrating the importance of preserving the elements here on Earth that are essential to our existence.
