The convergence of physics on the horizon

The convergence of physics on the horizon

We live in an era of global scientific discoveries - advanced physics, astrophysics and cosmology constantly occupy headlines.

The Large Hadron Collider accelerates particles to unprecedented collision energies; in search of gravitational waves, scientists are trying to go beyond the edge of the unknown; we are closer than ever to direct observation of the horizon of events surrounding a black hole; we even question our physical existence in space-time.

At the same time, the launch of research probes, representing the embodiment of the most advanced developments and technologies, allows us to look deeper into the Universe, to consider it on a scale that just a few years ago would have seemed like science fiction.

So, next week we will note some of the most fundamental physical ideas that are fundamental and set the direction for breakthroughs in our understanding of the universe. And Discovery News will be there to report on the most striking ideas that will be presented to us at the Convergence conference at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I have the honor to be the moderator of the concluding stand with the participation of some of the greatest names in space science, theoretical physics, gravitational wave astronomy and elementary particle physics on the last day (June 24, Wednesday) of the conference. It is noteworthy that even if you cannot be at the conference, you can take part in this event and watch all the presentations on the Internet for free.

You will find a variety of different views and opinions, which will express the biggest names in physics, so do not miss. You can subscribe to daily reminders about presentations and events via e-mail, as well as participate in all interesting things through the Facebook and Twitter pages of the Perimeter Institute - be sure to use the hashtag #piCONVERGE. In addition, carefully follow the conference blog, there will be exclusive interviews and stories about backstage events.
