FEBRUARY 2014 SCIENCE CAFÉ

As we have been doing for the past four years, the University of Michigan
Chapter of Sigma Xi provided financial support for support for one of
the UM Museum of Natural History's Science Cafés. This year it
was the February 26, 2014 Science Café on "Black Holes,
Gravity, and Cosmic Geometry".
The room was full and the
presentations and question period were fascinating. Speakers were
Kayhan Gültekin (Department of Astronomy) and Lydia Bieri
(Department of Mathematics).
