Engineering Open House is proud to present Dr. Phil Plait as the keynote speaker on Friday, March 8th in Foellinger Auditorium. An astronomer and popular science blogger, Phil has made appearances on the Discovery Channel, in addition to writing for both Discover Magazine and his current position at Slate.com. His focus for the night, Death from the Skies!, explores the possibilities behind an end-of-the-world catastrophe resulting from astronomical phenomena ranging from asteroid collisions to supernovae explosions to black holes, and what we can do to stop it from happening.

Tickets are free and available all day at the EOH Welcome Tent on March 8th. If supplies last, tickets will also be available at the door to Foellinger Auditorium before the show starts at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The speech will be followed by the Tesla Coil Concert on the Bardeen (Engineering) Quad.

Please come out and join us for a night of entertainment!
