CMNH: "The Dark Side of the Universe"

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History's Frontiers of Astronomy series has a really good one for Thursday, April 11:

"For the last 14 billion years, our Universe has been expanding. This expansion has been governed by the opposing influences of dark matter and dark energy. Dr. Megan Donahue will explore the evidence for dark matter and dark energy, and the prospects for determining the exact nature of these mysterious substances."

These events are free an open to the public, and parking in the museum lot is free as well- but be sure to arrive early because these FOA lectures have been very well attended! The actual start of the program is 8pm.

See you there! :)

    The speaker was quirky and funny, just the way an astrophysicist should be.

    I was there. Didn't see too many other CFT's. Saw Karl and Jim. At the time I thought it was a good presentation by a knowlegeable speaker. Later, after thinking about it I wasn't sure that I had any idea what she was talking about! Maybe if I go to these things often enough it might start to make sense to me.

    I had the same experience but since I am new to the group and I haven't met anyone I shouldn't have been surprised. Actually it was my bad as well as I didn't wait around.

    My fault. I was standing by the doorway into the auditorium and did see and talk to a handful of freethinkers, but should have waited in the lobby by the main doors! Sorry folks!

      No, my fault- I asked you WAY too late to look for other members, and failed to get a notice here for others to look for you. I should have posted something when I changed my rsvp to "no" several days ago. In all honesty, it's almost impossible to get everyone together at events of this type. However, for the next one we'll do our best to have a better system. maybe wait by that pedulumM
