Science Night Live: Physics for Rock Stars: Making the Laws of the Universe Work for You

Join us as we discuss the sexiest of sciences -- Physics. Mechanical engineer Christine McKinley says, “Physics is the sexiest of the sciences. Sure, you would argue that biology is all about reproduction, and chemistry has an intrinsically hot name, but when you get down to the guiding principles of the universe, it’s all physics. The laws of motion, energy, gravity, and entropy rule. Literally. They trump all other laws and inform all other activity. That’s what makes physics sexy. It is firmly in charge.”

Christine McKinley is a mechanical engineer, musician and author. Her musical Gracie and the Atom won a Portland Drammy for Original Score. Her book, Physics for Rock Stars, was published in 2014 by Penguin Random House. McKinley hosted Brad Meltzer’s  on History Channel and Under New York on Discovery Channel.

Science Night Live is Hofstra University’s public lecture series that features exciting science research presented by some of the top scientists and lecturers in their fields. Science is important in our everyday lives, and these timely lectures are sure to inspire and challenge us in unexpected ways.
