Professor Steven Weinberg is a Nobel laureate in physics and a theoretical physicist who is an outspoken thinker on topics ranging from nuclear weapons to atheism. But this night was about Weinberg’s life, career and development. Not just as a thinker, but as an artist in his field.

Stevenweinbergprx_small Weinberg’s wife Louise Weinberg was in the front row as he spoke about growing up in New York City during the depression, the chemistry set he inherited from his cousin, meeting his beautiful wife as a college student, and how his theories developed throughout.

Questions from the audience revealed their palpable curiosity about the more intricate points of theoretical physics that Weinberg was excited to discuss; everything from dark matter, and randomness, to his perspective on teaching Creationism in schools.

It was certainly a night to remember!
