The programs kick off with a talk titled “Uncovering the Underlying Structure of the Universe,” in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Meeting on Theoretical Physics, a conference co-hosted by The Institute and the UAE Space Agency.
Academicians from notable institutions will discuss how physicists have reached their current understanding of the universe, how black holes defy space and time to preserve information, as well as the profound reasons why the surrounding universe is incredibly huge.
