It’s a busy week this week, with a couple of new events added to our calendar thanks to Georgia Tech. Remember, you can follow us @sciencetavern on Twitter and on our Facebook page and that you can catch up with podcasts of select past meetups on iTunes.

See you at the Tavern,
Marc


This week
Monday, 6:00p
"A History of the Universe from Beginning to End" at Georgia Tech NEW
The history of the universe in a nutshell, from the Big Bang to now, and on to the future, as told by John Mather, 2006 Nobel Laureate in Physics, who was Project Scientist for NASA’s pioneering Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite.

Thursday, 6:00p
"Spontaneous Rhythms in Nature and Technology" at Georgia Tech NEW
Georgia Tech physicist Kurt Wiesenfeld discusses the rhythms that abound in nature and how spontaneous rhythmic coordination arises and how it might be controlled.

Thursday, 6:30p
Bottlenose Dolphins and Legacy Contaminants Along the Georgia Coast
We are pleased to be able to work with the Georgia Aquarium in helping to promote their monthly "Science on Tap" series. This month the topic will be bottlenose dolphins along the Georgia Coast and how they have been impacted by decades-old chemical contaminants.

Saturday, 7:00p
The Ethics of Making Hybrid Robots with Living Brains and Artificial Bodies
Steve Potter’s research group at the Neuroengineering Laboratory at Georgia Tech interfaces networks of brain cells to computers and robots to study the mechanisms of learning, memory and information processing. Steve will talk about his findings and will extrapolate on where he believes the field is heading in order to provoke a discussion about ethical implications of studies with semi-living animals.


In November
Sat, Nov 10, 7:00pm
A Model Science and Technology Internship Program for High School Students
We have to look no further than Wheeler High School in Cobb County to find a wonderful example of innovative science education in our own community. Please join us as teacher and coordinator Dawn Adams tells us about the model internship program that she has help to develop as part of the Center for Advanced Studies there.

Note: Our November Manuel’s event has been moved to the second Saturday to avoid the Thanksgiving weekend and the third-Saturday Atlanta Skeptics meetup.


Shout-outs

Sam Skinner writes to let us know about a talk on "Smart Water Solutions for Atlanta” sponsored by the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper this Friday; Ed Greco reports that video of the “Physics of the Piano” Colloquium at Tech is now available online here; and our CTO Mark Ditsler has posted the video of Carol Paty’s talk “The Future of Outer Solar System Exploration lies with JUICE (JUpiter ICy-moon Explorer)” from our Mars Landing Party on our RSS feed.
