A Tour Through Time @ Oglethorpe Museum of Art
March 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Lecture by Antonio Mántica ’15, Physics Major, Oglethorpe University Time is a very curious thing and it gives rise to many questions. Is time measurable in distinct increments, or does it flow continuously? And how do we travel through it? We know that we can move forward in it (we have no choice), but can we jump forward in time? Can we go backward in time? Mántica will walk you through the history and current understandings of how time functions and how we can use that knowledge to inform our experience of it.
