Over the course of history there have been 4 previous revolutionary breakthroughs in physics. Dr. James Overduin is here to tell us why we should expect at least one more in the future, and why we may be looking for it in the wrong places.

James Overduin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Geosciences at Towson University. He teaches calculus-based introductory physics, mathematical physics, and a Towson Seminar course called “Physics and Metaphysics”. His research is in the areas of gravitation, cosmology, astrophysics and physics education. Here he will be speaking on the four previous revolutions in physics, and why at least one more is on the way.
