Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure describes the plight of best friends, Bill S. Preston and Ted "Theodore" Logan, who are in danger of being separated because they're failing history. A time traveler from the future gives them a telephone booth so they can travel through time and ace their history report.
After the film, you'll have the opportunity to discuss particle physics with Dr. Pearl Sandick. In 2003, she earned a BA in Mathematics from New York University, after which she moved westward to the Twin Cities to pursue a PhD in Physics at the University of Minnesota. By August of 2008, she obtained a PhD, under the direction of Keith Olive. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Theory Group at The University of Texas at Austin before coming to the University of Utah, where she is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. She studies particle physics beyond the Standard Model, including DARK MATTER. Her research involves the connections between theoretical particle physics, cosmology, and astrophysics.
