Event Details

Black Holes, Beakers, and Books: Feynman

Sunday, May 12, 2013 | Other Dates  
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Are you interested in exploring the vast mysteries of the cosmos, understanding human evolutionary history or talking about the long-term future of the planet earth? These topics and more will be discussed in Black Holes, Beakers, and Books, a book club that reads and discusses popular science books published within the last five years.

Join us for a discussion of Feynman by Jim Ottaviani. For the first time, Black Holes, Beakers, and Books will discuss a work from our graphic collection. Ottaviani has written the biography of a great American physicist, Richard Feynman, who won the Nobel Prize, worked on the Manhattan Project, and helped expose the weaknesses that led to the Challenger space shuttle disaster. The author has deftly interwoven Feynman's scientific life with his family and personal life, including his relationship with his sister, who became a successful scientist in her own right.
