Astronomer and Discovery Channel Star Phil Plait at IIT – October 24

Asteroid impacts! Cometary debris! Extinction level events! These are the ways the world might end, and these are the topics of “Death from the Skies!” a scientifically-based but fun look at giant impacts from cosmic objects.

Union Board is proud to announce that Phil Plait — astronomer, author, and blogger — will talk about how these events have shaped our history, how they may do so again, and why Hollywood always seems to get them wrong, at 7 pm on Wednesday, October 24  in the IIT Tower Auditorium.

Plus UB will raffle 15 signed books and a full dinner with Phil Plait and UB exec board after the show. People can also buy Phil’s books from the IIT Bookstore and is an event where everyone is invited.
