David Morrison on the End of the World

armageddon

Our own David Morrison is giving a lecture on the end of the world tomorrow night!

Actually, the lecture is tomorrow night, not the end of the world. He is giving a public lecture on April 21 at 7 pm at Foothill College on the fear of doomsday and the mythology surrounding December 21, 2012 -- including public reactions (anger, threats of suicide, etc.). He hopes he can draw some lessons about how science is misunderstood and how public confusion and fear can be exploited by unscrupulous people and organizations.

The lecture is free, but parking at Foothill is $2. Details here at Foothill College website.

David is the director of NASA's Lunar Science Institute and director of the Carl Sagan Center for the Study of Life at the SETI Institute. A world-renowned planetary scientist and expert in the field of asteroid impacts, he is the author of more than 155 technical papers and has published a dozen popular books and introductory textbooks. He is the recipient of numerous awards for his scientific and educational work, including the Sagan Medal of the American Astronomical Society for public communication.


Webmaster Update --- For the superstitious members of the club, I have posted the link to the REM's "It's The End of the World as We Know It" Youtube video for your enjoyment! :)
