He is now a member of the CMS Collaboration at CERN. Prof. Prosper played an active role in the discovery of the top quark in 1995 by Dzero and its sister Collaboration CDFAbout the Talk:Echoes from the PastAccording to current observations, the universe may contain at least a hundred billion galaxies grouped in vast shell-like structures that surround immense expanses of space. In this talk, Dr. Prosper follows a line of reasoning that leads to an astonishing conclusion: that these immense cosmic structures are the echos of ripples in space and time that occurred 14 billion years ago.About TEDx: x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
