As part of the Odyssey on the Go Program at Johns Hopkins, Mario Livio is back with another entertaining lecture! Livio will deliver a talk on his newest book, Galileo and the Science Deniers.
In Mario Livio’s new book , the author offers a fresh biography of Galileo Galilei, which puts his scientific discoveries in the context of today’s knowledge. Disturbed by rampant science denial in America—and around the world—that has only intensified in recent years, Dr Livio began researching the life, ideas, and actions of this brilliant man who encountered similar pressures centuries ago. The result is a fascinating biography filled with lessons relevant for today—whether with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic or climate change. Dr Livio will discuss several of these topics in this talk.
Mario Livio, Ph.D., is an internationally known astrophysicist, a best-selling author, and a popular speaker. He has published more than 400 scientific papers on topics ranging from Dark Energy and cosmology to black holes and extrasolar planets. Dr. Livio is also the author of seven popular science books, including The Golden Ratio and Is God a Mathematician? His book, Brilliant Blunders, was a national bestseller in the U.S., and was selected by The Washington Post as one of the “Best Books of the Year.” His new book, Galileo and the Science Deniers, was published in May 2020 and received rave reviews in The Washington Post, the London Times, Science News, and many more.
