     In a special talk on Sunday, March 26, internationally renowned physicist Lawrence Krauss will discuss his new book, The Greatest Story Ever Told...So Far: Why Are We Here?, which will be released a few days before his appearance. In his book, Krauss connects the world we know with the invisible world all around us, which is removed from intuition and direct sensation. He explains our current understanding of nature and the struggle to construct the greatest theoretical edifice ever assembled, the Standard Model of Particle Physics — and then to understand its implications for our existence.

Lawrence Krauss     Lawrence Krauss is director of the Origins Project at ASU and Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Physics Department at Arizona State University. He has won numerous international awards for both his research and his efforts to improve the public understanding of science, he is the only physicist to have received the top awards from all 3 US Physics Societies, and is also the author of 9 books including bestsellers The Physics of Star Trek and A Universe from Nothing. He is a commentator and essayist for newspapers and appears regularly on radio and television and has recently delved into the film world as executive producer and subject of The Unbelievers, a documentary film that discusses science and reason. He is also co-chair of the Board of Sponsors of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and on the board of the Federation of American Scientists.

     Krauss's new book will be available for sale and signing.
