Our next monthly meeting will be Thursday, June 1st, at 7:30 P.M.
Time, an intangible that we all share and experience albeit with many different attitudes and feelings. To most of us time is a valuable and limited commodity of which we never seem to have enough. Parents watching their children grow, and senior citizens reflecting on the past wonder where all the time went and why it seems to pass faster as we age. Conversely, children looking forward to their birthday, favorite holiday, or an exciting future milestone are frustrated at how slowly time passes and wish the clocks could tick the hours and days away at a faster pace. To Scott Flaig, author, fellow SWFAS member, and our featured speaker at our June 1st meeting, time means so much more.
On Thursday, June 1, 2017, Scott will be discussing “time” as it refers to cosmology under the subsets of science, theology, and philosophy. Scott will be emphasizing “time” from the scientific point of view but will also incorporate the philosophical and theological view points as they clearly overlap. If you want to learn more about “time” including Absolute Time, Relativity Time, Planck Time, Entropy, Imaginary Time, Time Travel, and Eschatology (the end of time), then please make the “time” to attend Scott’s presentation and the June meeting of your astronomy club, the South West Florida Astronomical Society.
Scott’s presentation will begin at 7:30pm, Eastern Time, Daylight Savings Time, and 11:30pm Universal Time, on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium. You’ll be happy you spent the “time” learning about this most intriguing phenomenon.
