Non-profit educational group InterFASE (International Faith and Science Exchange) announced its annual Charles B. Townes Lecture on Science and Religion will be given by Jennifer Wiseman, who besides being a senior astrophysicist at Goddard Space Flight Center also heads up the AAAS DoSER program — Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The Sunday November 15 lecture, “Stars, Galaxies, Planets and Life! A Universe of Awe, Challenge, and Inspiration,” will be held at 3 p.m. EST via Zoom. Registration is free and those who wish to attend are encouraged to RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wiseman will explore the awe-inspiring beauty and challenging mysteries of our incredible universe, organizers said. The lecture is named for the scientist Charles Townes, who won both the Nobel Prize for his invention of the laser and the Templeton Prize for his efforts to unite science and faith.
