Theoretical physicist Brain Greene brings his A Time Traveller’s Tale show to Auckland on Sunday night.
All you need to do to enter is tell us what “string theory” is.
Write your brief explanation of string theory in the comment section below this post here on Sciblogs.
We’ll pick what we consider to be the most eloquent explanation of string theory as the winner of the tickets and put your names on the door for the show.
Keep it succinct, capture our imagination – and may the best explanation win!
Entries close 5pm on Thursday.
Don’t miss out!
If the task of describing string theory gives you a headache, Think Inc. and Loop still have some tickets available for Professor Greene’s show.
One of the world’s leading science communicators, Professor Greene will explore string theory, mathematical physics and cosmology in his popular lecture and audience Q&A.
The Columbia University professor of physics and mathematics is famous for his popular science books, including The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos.
His one and only Auckland appearance is part of an ongoing series by Think Inc, Loop and sponsored by AUT University, that features leading thinkers from around the world. Last September saw Dr Ben Goldacre feature on the Think Inc. bill in a well-received lecture and Q&A in Auckland. Tickets for A Time Traveller’s Tale start at $79.
