Atlanta-Area Folks: Star-Gazing at Emory This Friday

From a mail­ing list I’m on. Sounds fun, although I can’t remem­ber what else is hap­pen­ing in our lives this Fri­day. Obvi­ous­ly, it’s open to the pub­lic, or it would­n’t have been sent to the list I’m on 🙂


Dear Mem­bers of the Emory Community,

You, your fam­i­ly, and friends are cor­dial­ly invit­ed to join mem­bers of the Physics Depart­ment this Fri­day, Novem­ber 11th for two out­stand­ing events: First, world-renowned author and BBC/NOVA presenter,Simon Singh, will give a lec­ture and book sign­ing on his lat­est book, Big Bang. His lec­ture, “A His­to­ry of the Uni­verse in 60 Min­utes” not only explains the the­o­ry but tells the sto­ries of the pio­neer­ing sci­en­tists who devel­oped it. Lec­ture begins at 8:00 PM in White Hall, Room 208–(Suitable for adults, stu­dents and mature teens) Doors open at 7:30. His Web site is:

The lecture/book sign­ing is fol­lowed by a Plan­e­tar­i­um & Obser­va­to­ry Open House–Join Emory astronomers for live views of the plan­et Mars which is in excel­lent posi­tion for viewing–weather per­mit­ting. Just drop by the Plan­e­tar­i­um (E300) any­time between 9:00–11:30 PM and stay as long as you like. Tele­scopes will be set up for your view­ing pleasure.

As always, mem­bers of the Emory Astron­o­my Club will have refresh­ments on sale to keep you going through the evening. For details, please visit:

You can attend either one or both events. Both are FREE. We hope to see you there!
