The Future Prospects of Science
Knight Auditorium, Spurlock Museum
600 South Gregory, Urbana
Science and Engineering can find solutions to problems large and small—and the solution always comes with unexpected consequences, hopefully with solutions of their own. Professor Gruebele will discuss a few topics of current interest, ranging from specialization in science, to grand discoveries waiting to happen, to how making and using fossil fuels better is a big part of the equation, or the fundamental-applied pendulum that is currently swinging ‘applied.'
