Weekly Round Up – David Quammen, Sandra Steingraber, Neil deGrasse Tyson

Happy Wednesday! Let’s see who’s doing what and where … (this week – the science edition!)


David Quammen scared the dickens out of Indiana State University this week with his talk about Zika and other epidemic diseases.


Sandra Steingraber spoke to an audience of students and community activists last night at the University of North Carolina. There was some sort of celebration in the Dean Dome at the same time! She’ll be speaking at Davidson College (NC) tonight


Bad news for fans of extraterrestrial visitors – Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson doubts that we’ll be hearing from any other worlds any time soon. “I think they (we) might all be too far away from one another in space and possibly time…” he said in a recent Reddit AMA.
