"The Coming Revolutions in Fundamental Physics", by David Gross

03 December 2006
The lecture evolved around the necessity to go beyond the standard model of particle physics and to understand quantum gravity has led to String Theory. This ambitious attempt to unify all the forces of nature and all forms of matter's different vibrations of a string-like object is still in a pre-revolutionary stage. Although remarkable progress has been achieved in the last decade in understanding the perturbative and non-perturbative structure of String Theory, we still lack a fundamental understanding of the theory. Many string theorists suspect that a profound conceptual change in our concept of space and time will be required for the final formulation of string theory.

Red Tide and Human Health

20 November 2006
The National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (NIOF) is organizing a seminar on “Red Tide and Human Health”, in cooperation with the Planetarium Science Center at the BA and the American Center Alexandria (ACA). The seminar seeks to identify areas of red tide occurrences and the types of toxins secreted across Egyptian waters, and discuss efforts to use remote sensing to create a biological map of Egyptian waters added to the marine database. Such a plan would be geared toward environmental detection of toxic red tides throughout the year.
