Death from the Skies by Phil Plait
Saturday 10 August, 2013
5pm – 7:30pm

Dr Phil Plait, the engaging scientist behind the hugely popular website www.badastronomy.com will present a witty and entraining family oriented talk on all the bizarre ways the world may come to an end! From planet swallowing black holes to rogue asteroids this is your opportunity to discover the real odds of us being wiped out by our violent Universe. We are sure even the most science phobic will love this rare opportunity to meet a real astronomical celebrity. The evening starts at Fort Street School at 5pm for the talk. Make sure you arrive 10 minutes early to be seated. Afterwards, weather permitting, enjoy views of Saturn through Sydney Observatory telescopes until 7.30pm.
