Nerd Nite Launches October 28th!

This is the moment you’ve been waiting for… The official launch of Nerd Nite NoHo!

We have two great talks for the evening:

These crazy times: What the heck is happening in Washington, and what does it have to do with me? Jo Comerford, executive director of, takes on Congress, the federal budget, a government shutdown, and the debt ceiling, with some slick charts and a robust sense of humor. Jo is a dynamic public speaker and frequent contributor to such publications as The Nation,, and Mother Jones.

Inside a crumpled ball: surprising physics of a familiar object. From the tiniest cell to the largest mountain ranges, crumpling exists all around us, yet the physics remains poorly understood. UMass grad student Dominique Cambou climbs inside the crumple with x-ray tomography and other stunning visuals to explain this universal phenomenon and forever change your view of the waste-basket 3-pointer. Dominique’s research has attracted the attention of Wired Science and Physics Today.

The last Monday of the month through at least December. Cover is $3. 21+. Spread the word!
