Abraham (Avi) Loeb is the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University, founding director of Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative, director of Harvard's Institute for Theory and Computation and the leader of the Galileo project. In 2012, Time Magazine selected Avi as one of the twenty-five most influential people in space. He is also the author of four books and over 1000 scientific papers.

In this Science Cafe we’ll learn about Avi’s early influences and discuss the Galileo project, an expedition to retrieve and identify astro-archaeological artifacts. We look forward to seeing you there.

Loeb received a PhD in Physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel at age 24 (1980-1986), led the first international project supported by the Strategic Defense Initiative (1983-1988), and was subsequently a long-term member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton (1988-1993). He is the bestselling author (in lists of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, L'Express and more).
