Just a heads up for folks that this week begins the World Science Festival 2015. It's a five-day celebration of all things empirical investigation of the cosmos. This year's program is full of fascinating discussions on brain science, space science and celebration of the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity.
You can see everything that's going on at the festival on their website. If you're in or near New York City from Wednesday to Sunday it would be worth your time.
