Neutrino Day keynote speakers Joel Primack and Nancy Ellen Abrams believe we are at the center of the visible universe...and so is everything else. Primack is a professor of physics and astrophysics at the University of California Santa Cruz, and Abrams is a writer with a B.A. in history and the philosophy of science from the University of Chicago. The two present their conclusions in the book "The View from the Center of the Universe: Discovering Our Extraordinary Place in the Cosmos." They will discuss their views further during the final lecture of the 7th anual Neutrino Day at 3pm MT on Saturday, July 12. Primack and Abrams also joined Innovation a mile underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility.
