Here is what you can expect:
An electron, a proton and a neutron walk into a bar...
It's always Happy Hour at The Event Horizon, a bar at the edge of a black hole where legendary scientific mixologists Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr pass infinite good times with their loyal patrons. Particles collide, customers perform experiments with shot glasses and ashtrays, and the laws of physics come home to roost.
Regulars at this establishment include a photon that has daringly escaped from a black hole, the oldest galaxy in the universe who imparts the wisdom of her age, and a gaggle of theories that challenge one another to pub games to determine which one will prevail.
After the show, which is around 90 minutes, I will be part of a panel discussion on "Science in the Media." We'll discuss how science is treated -- and ought to be treated -- in news and entertainment media. My focus will be on increasing public appreciation of the real risks and benefits of emerging technologies, especially nanotechnology.
Hope to see you there!
