"The Milky Way, Schrodinger's Cat and You"
Dr. Puragra Guhathakurta ("Raja") of the University of California, in collaboration with Sandra Faber, presents "The Milky Way, Schrodinger's Cat, and You," a lecture about the birth and evolution of galaxies like the Milky Way.

In this journey Raja provides evidence for how Quantum mechanics is responsible for the large scale structure of the Universe we see today.
