  • 4:00pm - 5:00pm
  • PHY/CHM Seminar - Why Isn't God Ambidextrous? by Dr. Tim Gay, UNL

    Until 1957, scientists thought that the fundamental laws of Nature must be the same whether they were applied to our Universe or the Universe that is a mirror reflection of our own. The implications of the discovery that this is not true - essentially that Nature is "handed" - will be discussed. Some interesting applications of handedness, or "chirality" in agriculture, biology, chemistry, and physics will be presented. Dr. Gay will also talk about some new physics experiments on chirality that may shed light on how life began on this planet.
