Copernicus Comments on 20th Century Physics

In this lecture George impersonates a 536-year-old Copernicus, who recently gained access to the internet and has caught up on 20th Century theoretical physics. Copernicus makes several predictions about which current theories will end up as epicycle dead-ends, and which will lead to a new Copernican Revolution. This lecture was given on October 3, 2009 at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco as part of the Humanities West program on Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler: Redefining Our Place in the Universe.
