Every day between now and when it closes, we’re going to be featuring one super cool item that you can bid on in this year’s Moth Ball Auction! Today, change your view of the universe over lunch with Professor Brian Greene.
Discuss string theory with New York Times bestselling author Brian Greene over lunch at Hangawi in New York City.
String theory could provide us with a unified theory of all forces and all matter. Unfortunately it is also rather tricky for mere mortals to understand. Fear not, because help is at hand! Brian Greene, Professor of Mathematics and Physics at Columbia University, has been recognized with a Peabody Award and many other prizes for his successful popularization of science.
We’ll ask you for the CliffsNotes later!
