Professor David Gross Lecture: 25 Questions on the Future of Physics

Date: 13th August 2007

Venue: HKUST - The Honk Kong University of Science and Technology

Professor David Gross won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2004 for the discovery of asymptotic freedom, which focuses on understanding the strong interactions that bind quarks and nuclear matter to string theory. After receiving his PhD from UC Berkeley in 1966, he was a Junior Fellow at Harvard University and was affiliated with Princeton University for 27 years. He joined UC Santa Barbara in 1996 and is now the director of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics. A member of the US National Academy of Sciences, he is the recipient of the J. J. Sakurai Prize of the American Physical Society in 1986, and the Dirac Medal in 1988. In 2004, he received France’s highest scientific honor, the Grande M?daille D’or, for his contributions to the understanding of fundamental physical reality.

In this talk, Professor Gross will discuss 25 questions that might guide physics over the next 25 years. The questions range from cosmology (What is the origin of the Universe?) to BioPhysics (What is the nature of Consciousness?).

very useful.Thanks

The celebration of IYP 2005 and IYA 2009 indicates that all
is not well with "learning" of "O" level
physics n astronomy too. In particular, it is to be noted
that Frank Wilczek (Nobel Laureate, Physics, 2004) had
maximum trouble in learning classical mechanics. So it is
quite reasonable to assume that there could be some more
Frank-like students who could have gone away from physics
due to the same reason. So readers of "Future of
Physics" can find my Letter on the same useful. See
"Space Research Today" #174, April 2009, p. 68 or
