God’s Thoughts: The Modern Search for a Theory of Everything.

Abstract: Science is a broad field of human endeavor, with many goals.  However, perhaps the grandest goal of all is to devise a theory of everything, which is to say a theory that is able to describe the diversity of our universe using just a handful of building blocks and perhaps a single guiding principle.  In this talk, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln will explain where we are, where we want to go, and what is a realistic path towards getting there.  This talk will closely parallel his March 2017 cover article in The Physics Teacher.
