ASU Origins Project: Storytelling of Science

Skeptics -

More from ASU Origins Project? Yes please! This one is a panel called "Origins Stories: The Storytelling of Science." It features some amazing panelists including the astrophysicist and fashion icon Neil deGrasse Tyson.

From the Origins Project website:

[The panelists will] discuss the stories behind cutting edge science from the origin of the universe to a discussion of exciting technologies that will change our future. They will demonstrate how to convey the excitement of science and the importance helping promote a public understanding of science.

What could be more up our skeptical alley?

*** UPDATE: The meetup after the show is a short drive from Gammage at Boulders on Broadway (530 W Broadway Rd, Tempe, AZ 85282). Head over immediately after the show for food and drinks. Ask for the skeptics at the host desk or just head upstairs; we should have a private area. ***

I hope to see you all Saturday night!

- Matt

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for one ticket also. I'm totally going to show up at Gammage and see if anything becomes available, yes I think it's worth a try.

    March 30, 2013

    • Autumn T.

      Scott and Gregg, I'm looking for a ticket, I'll pay like $50 dollars for one. Where were those $45 dollar ones? Yeah I'll meet up if I can't find tickets! email me [masked]

      March 30, 2013

    • Scott J.

      They were on craigslist, but seem to be sold at this point.

    i have never been to Boulders on Broadway before, is it more restaurant or bar? would my 18 yo nephew be allowed or is it 21 and over only?

    March 29, 2013

    • Scott J.

      More bar crowd than restaurant crowd, but I've definitely seen kids in there.

      March 30, 2013

  • Scott J.

    For those of us who can't get tickets, is anyone interested in a meetup to watch the event streaming online at Boulders on Broadway?

    March 30, 2013

  • Terri S.

    Been waiting for years to see Neil in person. Can't wait!

  • Bob C.

    I need two tickets, where is the best place to get them?

    March 27, 2013

    • Amanda B.

      Well the best place is in person at the Gammage Box office (you save some money). But if not, you can get them through ticket master. Or keep your eyes and ears open to see if someone is trying to get rid of their tickets!

      March 29, 2013

    • Shane L.

      I think the tickets sold out? Any way I can get some??

      March 29, 2013

  • John M.

    Does anybody wanna suggest an informal meet up for after tonight?

      This is Saturday night only by the way!

      March 26, 2013

  • Jim

    I'm there both nights. Saturday I'm up on the balcony. Is anyone going out for dinner prior to or after the event on Saturday?

    March 25, 2013

  • Dan B.

    If anyone has an extra ticket, I'll take it. My wife couldn't go, so I just need one. There are some available but I don't want to sit in the balcony.

      One of our members has a pair for sale: Bill Mar. I will try and get you two in touch.

      March 20, 2013

      But please don't wait on me! I may be out of the loop for a few days out of country.

    Haven't seen tickets for this, yet.

    • Dale G.

      On sale starting tomorrow (3/1) to gen public.

      February 28, 2013

    • Amanda B.

      Actually "presale" started today. I'm pretty sure you can buy them at the Gammage box office or online with a code. I think it was "origins" but they removed the post announcing the special presale.

      February 28, 2013

  • Amanda B.

    Notice it says "Tentative" next to Neil Degrasse Tyson. Apparently there is a "tight scheduling issue". I will be SOOO bummed.

  • Rose

    Brian Greene, Tim Minchin, Neal Stephenson and Neil DeGrasse Tyson all on one stage...can that much awesomeness cause the universe to implode? Who better to ask!

    I know these are lectures are not designed for children, but do you think a well behaved 9 year old would be allowed? He is a HUGE NDT fan?

    January 16, 2013

    • Matt L.

      Lynn - I think your son will be allowed and will enjoy the night. I hope you both make it!

    Just realized I'm going to be at the American Atheist convention this weekend.

    January 17, 2013

  • Mark

    I'd love to attend. Is there a cost involved? I've been out of work for 7 months, so cash is very tight.

    January 16, 2013

  • Lynn

    yes! yes! yes! yes! yes!!!
