The Science History Club Presents Richard Dawkins
Richard Dawkins appears at the Gwinnett Center for Performing Arts to speak and to celebrate the release of his most recent work, "The Magic of Reality" with a book signing and reception. This event is sold out. I have set up a Facebook event page, Dawkins Does Duluth, to facilitate ticket hunting and to make arrangements for a get-together after the show.

Shout-outs
In order to celebrate the high-energy physics conference in Atlanta later this month, the American Physical Society is holding a contest to see who can make the best under-5-minute video about elementary particle physics. The grand prize is a "cosmic balloon ride". See this thread on our message board for details. The deadline for entries is March 19.
