The NIST colloquium series provides an opportunity for staff to hear the views of outstanding scientists, scholars, explorers, and leaders on topics of current interest. It is a distinguished lecturer series to raise the intellectual climate at NIST: challenging, visionary, and speculative concepts are welcome.
Speakers have included dozens of Nobel Prize and MacArthur Fellowship winners, as well as foremost leaders in industry and government. A number of prominent writers, academics, and historians have spoken in the series.
Brilliant Blunders, by Mario Livio
