Nobel laureate Sheldon Lee Glashow speaking at the Honeywell Nobel Initiative Lecture Series in Belgaum on Thursday
Nobel laureate Sheldon Lee Glashow, in his first-ever talk on Indian soil on Thursday, not only posed a question “Does science evolve through blind chance or intelligent design,” but also gave a quick answer, which was affirmative.
He was addressing a gathering of eminent academicians, faculty members of universities and students at the launch of the Honeywell Nobel Initiative Lecture Series (December 6 and 7) on the Jnana Sangama campus of the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) here.
In fact, he is on a mission to make young minds take keen interest in research and basic sciences by directly interacting with students in group discussions.
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has named Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) in Belgaum as the inaugural site for the Indian launch of the Honeywell - Nobel Laureate Lecture Series, the centerpiece of a global education initiative designed to connect students across the globe with Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry and Physics.
Dr. Sheldon Glashow, the 1979 Nobel Laureate in Physics, visited VTU on December 6 and 7 to participate in various activities with students and faculty while on campus including a lecture on December 6th entitled: “Blind Chance or Intelligent Design: The Need for Basic Research”. He will also deliver a colloquium on “The Story of Neutrinos: From a Desperate Remedy to a Profound Enigma”
The Honeywell – Nobel Initiative brings students together with some of the world’s most advanced minds to inspire and motivate the development of the leading scientists of the future. Dr. Glashow’s visit to VTU is a significant milestone in the partnership between VTU and Honeywell.
