This month's LSU Science Cafe is a SciArt Conversation: a presentation series where a scientist and an artist share two views on a seemingly overlapping topic. This SciArt Conversation features physicist Jorge Pullin and violist Elias Goldstein. Dr. Pullin will tell us about String Theory and why Loop Quantum Gravity might be a better explanation for the same fundamental questions about the universe; while Dr. Goldstein will tell us why many musicians believe that it is impossible to play Paganini Caprises on the viola, and will demonstrate, on his viola, how he has been proving that this string theory needs revision. SciArt Conversations is a co-production of the LSU School of Theatre and College of Science. This is a free event, but does require registration. Click here to sign up.
