Watch the complete conversation on “the end of everything” with Katie Mack

In a special live Perimeter webcast in May 2020, theoretical cosmologist and science communicator Katie Mack — known to her many Twitter followers as @AstroKatie — spoke on her favourite subject: the end of the universe.

Mack, who holds a Simons Emmy Noether Fellowship at Perimeter, gave viewers a sneak peek of her upcoming book, The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking), and answered questions from online viewers.

She is a also popular science communicator, both on social media and through contributions to Scientific American, Slate, Sky & Telescope, Time, Cosmos, and more.
