Brian Greene Q & A Tonight

The World Science Festival is hosting a live Q&A forum with popular physics author (and respected physicist) Brian Greene, theoretical physicist Leonard Susskind, and 2011 Nobel Prize winner Saul Perlmutter. Apparently it sold out 10 minutes after the announcement–but not to fear! For those of us without tickets and without a way to travel to New York City, the event will be streamed as a live webcast tonight at 10pm EST.

Members of the digital audience will still be able to submit questions which might be chosen during the event. (Only maybe don’t repeat what Sheldon asked on The Big Bang Theory.)

Check it out at the World Science Festival website here.

    Brian Greene isn’t really one of us.

      So he’s not an atheist. But in that article you linked, Brian Greene claims scientific agnosticism for similar reasons that Steven Novella has written about in the past. (See http://theness.com/neurologicablog/index.php/skepticism-and-religion-again/)

      I don’t think that’s at odds with skepticism.

      Besides that, science education is a very important part of the movement, and Brian Greene is certainly a popular science educator to follow.
