This is not a RASC Vancouver event: I am posting it here because it may be of interest to group members.
Neal Turok of the Perimeter Institute will speak on the topic of "What Banged?" at the Chan Centre on the UBC campus. I'm sure the talk will be fascinating.
Tickets are nominally $25, but actually $32 due to the $7 TicketMaster fee if you purchase the tickets online (slightly more expensive if you purchase from TicketMaster by phone).
