In 2013, Freeman Dyson celebrates his ninetieth birthday and also marks his sixtieth year as a Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study. Dreams of Earth and Sky, conceived by Dyson’s colleagues in the School of Natural Scienceswas an opportunity to provide a perspective on his work and impact across the sciences and humanities. Held on the Institute campus from September 27-28, the program featured a range of talks on mathematics, physics, astronomy, and public affairs that reflect both the diversity of Dyson’s interests and his ability to open new dialogues and inspire generations of scholars.
