Voyager Lecture with Ron Smith: End of the World

April 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$15

End of the World?

Are we the only planet in the universe lucky enough to still be here?



In the 1998 movie Armageddon, astronomers discover a large asteroid heading directly for earth. Our planet was saved by the heroic efforts of Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis), who blew it up in space. We all know that a collision with a large asteroid could destroy human civilization, and there are many other potential threats. As Ron Smith enumerates other hazards that could imperil our existence—rogue planets, black holes, X-ray bursts, coronal mass ejections, and supernovae—you might conclude that we have been extremely lucky to avoid extinction. All of these “end-of-the-world events” have given rise to a new theory about our chances of discovering an extraterrestrial civilization. It’s called “The Great Filter.” 

Analyzing end-of-the-world scenarios provides insight into our probability of finding another technological society. Are we one of multitudes of civilizations, or are we the only one lucky enough to have avoided an end-of-the-world scenario? Find out on April 30th.
  

An informal social gathering begins at 6 pm. Cost is $15, including refreshments.

(Note: The Voyager Lecture Series is sponsored by Voyager Wealth Advisors, Inc., Cache Valley Bank, and State Farm Insurance Agent Sherry McGhee.)
