Neil deGrasse Tyson: A Cosmic Perspective Just Added

Neil deGrasse Tyson: A Cosmic Perspective

Your personal astrophysicist returns this July

“The most dangerous people in a free society are those who don’t know… It’s okay to not know. But if you don’t know, but think you do know … that is dangerous. Those are the signs of the end of an informed democracy.”


An Evening with Dr Jane Goodall Just Added

An Evening with Dr Jane Goodall

A rare chance to hear Jane Goodall in person

A byword for primatology and conservation, Jane Goodall brought us closer to our nearest relatives with her studies on the chimpanzees of the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania. Now, in An Evening with Jane Goodall, she will be speaking about her experiences, followed by a conversation with a special guest host. Through her iconoclastic research, she showed the world their capacity for tool making, their complex family relationships, both their intimate friendships and their dark and violent nature. Enjoy a rare opportunity to hear her in person.
