It’s a very tech-filled week here in New York. Come out and hear talks about green energy, the Internet, and the space program.
Come learn about the ins and outs of the Internet at The Architectural League of New York. Andrew Blum, author of Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet, will shed some light on the infrastructure of the Internet and introduce you to the sights, sounds, places, and people that keep the information superhighway running.
The Columbia Astronomy Public Outreach program’s summer film series occurs every other Friday. This week the film is, The Right Stuff, an adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s book about the US space program. After the film, there will be a discussion of what was science fiction vs science fact in the movie, followed by a stargazing session.
Saturday is “Identification Day” at the American Museum of Natural History. Come bring your shells, rocks, insects, feathers and other artifacts to the museum to have them identified by scientists.
