HHMI Janelia Farm Research Campus-DIALOGUES OF DISCOVERY

Ok you science loving heathens!

it's getting close to another of our Dialogues of Discovery talks at HHMI Janelia Farm!  The next scheduled Dialogues of Discovery talk will be on Dec. 12.  This is a wednesday.  Tickets for this talk will start to be released 4 weeks before the talk so this puts it about Nov. 13 or so.  The speaker for this talk will be Janelia's own Dr. Eric Betzig.  I'm not exactly sure what the talk will be about yet.  However, Here is Eric's bio on the Janelia webpage:  http://www.janelia.org/people/scientist/eric-betzig

Once I have all the information I will update this meetup with the link to get tickets.  Tickets are free for this event, but you have to reserve one before they sell out.   Like in times past, I will be hosting both dinner before the talk at Bob's pub here at Janelia as well as a tour of Janelia Farm after the talk.  I can take no more than 6 people for the tours.  So I will take a first email first serve on this.  You can RSVP to me at [masked] if you want to go on the tour.  I'm also taking no more than 10 RSVPs for the dinner prior to the talk.  If you would like to have dinner at Janelia Farm prior to the tour, email me at [masked].

    Information on the talk:
    Since the twin inventions of the microscope and telescope more than 400 years ago, our understanding of the universe and our place within it has expanded enormously. Eric Betzig, a group leader at Janelia Farm Research Campus, will describe some of the key players in this saga, and how technological innovations to see the most distant bodies in space have made it possible to see the most minute features within our own bodies.

    Dr. Betzig will speak on Wednesday, December 12, at 7 p.m., in the auditorium at the Janelia Farm Research Campus, 19700 Helix Drive, Ashburn, VA. His talk is entitled, "All Things Great and Small: Historical Connections Between Astronomy and Microscopy". The doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

    All attendees must have a ticket.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
