  • Time: 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM

  • Description:

    The internet has created a golden age of science writing but it has also fragmented the audience making it harder than ever for society as a whole to understand what science has to tell us about our genes or the fate of the Earth. The cosmic affairs correspondent of The New York Times explains why covering science is harder and more important and more fun than ever.

    Please join us for a coffee and cookie reception prior to the lecture, beginning at 3:30 PM. The reception will be held in the Blau Lobby, located just outside of the Blau Auditorium.
