CSU Pueblo talk January 25

By Phil Plait | January 20, 2012 1:27 pm

Are you in the southern Colorado area? I’ll be in Pueblo, Colorado on the evening of Wednesday January 25th to give my "Bad Astronomy" talk. The talk is at 7:00 p.m. at Hoag Hall on the CSU campus, and is the keynote speech for an all-day Space Exploration Seminar. While the seminar is only for CSU students, my talk is open to the public and free. Free I say!

You can read more about it in The Chieftan, the local newspaper.

The talk is part poking fun at misinformation, part asteroid impact discussion — there’s a lot of the former in the latter, so it all fits together. Plus, I’ll be standing eggs on end! Can there possibly be a better way to spend a Wednesday evening?*

Hopefully, a few days is enough notice to mark your calendars, find babysitters, and hide your valuables. I hope to see some of you there!

* Yes.

    It never ceases to amaze me how the religious right wing of the GOP can claim a correlation between everything they dislike (i.e. we are being too nice to gays, or other ways they deem the liberal populace to be rejecting God too numerous to mention) and every natural disaster known to man, but somehow humans putting too much emissions from fossil fuel use into the air is just too speculative for them to attribute the evident (obvious even to a dope) warming of the planet to. Things that make you go HMMMM.

  2. Ann (#1): Um. Ok. Did you mean for that comment to go with this post?

    Looking forward to your talk on Wednesday! (I’m glad you’re getting this talk in before the center of the Milky Way aligns with our Solar System causing our sun to explode and stripping the Earth of it’s atmosphere turning all surviving Earthlings into underground dwelling zombies!)
