Conversation w/ Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson @Long Center
Jan 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm
Get ready Austin…because your favorite out-of-this-world astrophysicist, the one and only Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, is headed to the Long Center to drop some cosmic knowledge January 18. Tickets available today, and they’ll fly at warp speed!
Join us for an evening with an intergalactic personality who needs no introduction—Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, award-winning astrophysicist, author, and favored science “it-guy.” Also host of FOX’s Cosmos, the time is now to sign right up for a front row seat to this evening of engaging conversation with Dr. Tyson on science, exploration and the world as we know it.
Titled “The Cosmic Perspective,” Dr. Tyson’s lecture will focus on our Earth, its place, and the ways we perceive it. He will explain how there is no view of the world as emotionally potent as the one granted by a cosmic perspective that sees Earth as a planet in a vast and empty universe—a pale blue dot. The way we conceive of these things profoundly influences what we think and feel about science, culture, politics and life itself.
Tickets available at TheLongCenter.org or by calling (512) 474.LONG (5664).
Also available at the Long Center’s 3M Box Office located at 701 West Riverside Drive at South First Street.
For groups of 10 and more, please call 512-457-5161 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
