Nerd Nite #37: COSMIC COUPLING

日本語の説明もある、下のほうを確認して!

Every month we gather 3 smart speakers and a curious crowd. In October, we take an eclectic journey from the stars to our internal organs, with a stop in the world of literature. "We are stardust", but what does this mean in terms of physics? How can we understand and treat a disease that is widespread but largely unknown? And sex scenes in fiction can be hilarious and horrible -- why is it so hard to get it right?

Drinks (both alcoholic and non) and food from Tiny Peace Kitchen will be available. Eat, drink and be square-y! Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.

Speakers:

Evan Fallenberg -- Sex on the Page: How Writers Deal with Writing the Sex Scene
Fahrettin Haczeyni -- Foie Gras: Protecting the Liver from a Silent Disease
Sarah Naimi -- We Are Stardust: A Nuclear Physicist Explains What It Really Means (http://sarahnaimi.com/)
When: October 11 (Friday), doors open 19:30, start 20:00

Where: Nagatacho GRID B1F (https://goo.gl/maps/mc5YMnFPuSS2)

Price: ¥1000 at the door
