A Universe of Possibilities


Expanding Cosmic Inquiry through Data Science

Curious about the nature of the universe or whether we could someday settle on Mars? Join Chancellor Carol T. Christ and distinguished faculty and friends as we kick off the Berkeley 150 Roadshow lecture series with an event featuring Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist Saul Perlmutter Ph.D. ’86, director of the Berkeley Institute of Data Science; and Dean A. Richard Newton Memorial Professor Adam Arkin, director of the Berkeley Synthetic Biology Institute. Using new methods in data science, they’re revealing far-reaching insights into the dynamics of our cosmos and what it would take to survive in harsh environments on both Earth and Mars.
