What we're about

Because we are smart enough to know how to have fun through unique events! So what are people saying about the New York Brainiacs?

"Wow, that event looks AMAZING!", "Oh my, I have never heard of that kind of event before!", "Where do you come up with these ideas, they are incredible"

We get together for fun and unique events including trivia nights, visiting museums, art galleries, classes, wine tastings, music, social mixers, parties, theater, walking tours, scavenger hunts, and more.

Our events are casual and fun with plenty of opportunity for socializing. Anyone can join. Most of our members are single, but it is not a requirement. If your plans change, all we ask is that you please update your RSVP's at least 24 hours before an event.

The Radiometric Revolution: John F. Marra on his book "Hot Carbon"

In "Hot Carbon: Carbon-14 and a Revolution in Science," John F. Marra tells the story of the radioactive isotope used to date organic materials, with research applications ranging from archeology to oceanography to climatology. Marra weaves together the workings of the many disciplines that employ carbon-14 dating with gripping tales of the individuals who pioneered its possibilities, and describes the concrete applications of carbon-14 to the study of all the stuff of life on earth, from climate science’s understanding of change over time to his own work on oceanic photosynthesis with microscopic phytoplankton. His engaging narrative encompasses nuclear testing, the peopling of the Americas, elephant poaching, and the flax plants used for the linen in the Shroud of Turin. This will be a hybrid presentation, mixing slides with readings from the book! Copies of "Hot Carbon" will be available for purchase! John F. Marra is professor of earth and environmental sciences and director of the Aquatic Research and Environmental Assessment Center at Brooklyn College. He was previously a research scientist and associate director of the Division of Biology and Paleoenvironment at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Brooklyn Commons features a wide selection of coffee, food, desserts, beer, and wine. http://thecommonsbrooklyn.org This is a co-listing of a New York City Skeptics event. https://www.meetup.com/The-NYCSkeptics-Meetup-Group/events/263018882/
