How Long is Forever? A Physics and Astronomy Perspective

How Long is Forever? A Physics and Astronomy Perspective

In the quest to understand the true nature of time and eternity, modern elementary particle physics has made major strides in recent years, as Kol Ami‘s guest physicist, Dr. Michael Dine, can attest from his own groundbreaking work. New theories about supersymmetry, the landscape concept, and the stability of the universe go far beyond the Standard Model to which we have been accustomed for decades.

Dr. Dine offers a glimpse into the strange new world of physics and the implications of alternate theories for the ultimate fate of the universe. He will be followed in a future post by Rabbi Melanie Aron (who also happens to be his spouse), who will provide a Jewish perspective.

(This post is part of Sinai and Synapses’ project Scientists in Synagogues, a grass-roots program to offer Jews opportunities to explore the most interesting and pressing questions surrounding Judaism and science. How Long is Forever?” was a special event held at Kol Ami – The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community on May 19, 2024.)
