Public Events

The Origin of the Universe

This talk by Steven Weinberg was the first CERCA public lecture.
(There are problems w/the video and audio source for the encoding of this talk. Great effort was put forth during the encoding to ameliorate these, but you will notice that the video/audio quality is lesser than other events archived here.)
