Brian Keating - Losing the Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor




Join UCSD astrophysicist Brian Keating to discuss his new book which tells the inside story of a quest to unlock one of cosmology’s biggest mysteries, derailed by the lure of the Nobel Prize. Keating brings to vivid life the highly competitive, take-no- prisoners, publish-or- perish world of modern science. Along the way, he provocatively argues that the Nobel Prize, instead of advancing scientific progress, may actually hamper it, encouraging speed and greed while punishing collaboration and bold innovation. Keating offers practical solutions for reforming the prize. A book signing will follow the Talk.
