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!
Sorry for the short notice — I was going to post Monday but the day got away from me — but I’ll be giving my “Death From The Skies!” talk tonight in Tyler, Texas at the Tyler Junior College at 6:30 p.m. You can get the details at the Hudnell Planetarium blog. I hope to see some of you there!
