Weekly Round Up: Neil deGrasse Tyson, Arn Chorn Pond, Emily Hunter

Happy Wednesday! Let’s see what our speakers are up to this week …


Neil deGrasse Tyson shares his thoughts about the passing of Stephen Hawking: “His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake. But it’s not empty. Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure. Stephen Hawking, RIP 1942-2018. ”


Arn Chorn Pond shared his story of surviving genocide, and his human rights work, with students in Lowell, MA, a city with one of the largest Cambodian populations in the country.


Emily Hunter is leading Greenpeace’s efforts to stop harvesting krill.
