Café Scientifique

Interested in science, but hate the stuffy atmosphere of a college lecture hall? Want to learn more about the latest technology breakthroughs in normal English, minus the jargon? Then Café Scientifique Pittsburgh at Carnegie Science Center is the place to be!

Café Sci is THE place in Pittsburgh where anyone interested in science can get together in a really cool setting to discuss today's science issues with experts, and best of all... it's not a lecture! After a brief introduction by our monthly guest speaker, the evening is dedicated to informal discussion, eating, and drinking.

Join us for Café Scientifique on Monday, Nov. 19. RSVP Now!

The Evolution of the Universe Revealed by Hubble

The Hubble Space Telescope captures breathtaking images, but what can we learn from them?

Dr. Andrew Zentner, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pittsburgh will highlight some of the most influential Hubble observations and highlight their scientific significance.

"The Evolution of the Universe Revealed by Hubble" will focus on how these images:

  • Aid in understanding the 14-billion-year evolution of the universe as we know it.
  • Shed light on the formation of galaxies and structure in the universe.
  • Display the formation of new stars and solar systems in our galaxy.
