    On the 400th anniversary of Galileo's invention of the telescope, Brian Keating spoke at UCSD's Cal-It2 event: "Galileo Between Science, Science Studies, and Science Fiction," along with authors Kim Stanley Robinson and Mario Biogioli. Keating describes his observations of the early universe made with a version of Galileo's refractor telescope, which is sensitive to radio-waves, instead of visible light. This telescope (BICEP), located in Antarctica, has made ultra-sensitive images of the afterglow of the Big Bang. He showed imsages of the early universe as well as observations of Jupiter made with a new UCSD telescope (POLARBEAR). Link to YouTube video. [Keating starts at 1h6m]

    "It’s not all relative when a nationally recognized physicist discusses two game changing geniuses of the 20th century. Join Dr. Brian Keating, who last wowed REP audiences with his provocative discussion of the birth of the universe, as he describes connections between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, not the least of which was Picasso’s attempt to represent multiple (spatial) dimensions in only two dimensions of the canvas—a highly mathematical endeavor! Dr. Keating received the Presidential White House Science Award."
