The topic of the Tuesday, October 19 2010 OMSI Science Pub is A Date with Physics:
Physics with all its laws, theories, and complicated equations is a science dreaded by many. We have all heard of E=mc2; it sounds smart, but what does it actually mean? How does it relate to me? Do I really need to know?
A young physicist in love is convinced his date wants to know all about physics and will be impressed with his knowledge of the laws of mechanics, thermodynamics, optics, and electromagnetism. What girl has not dreamed of a date where the bottle of wine is a physics experiment and the romantic candlelight is a crucial piece to a physics lab? Find out if he is successful in his pursuit of science and love, or if she runs away screaming. Of course we believe YOU will love the science.
Presented by PSU professor of physic Ralf Widenhorn, PhD, this Science Pub takes place at the Mission Theater (1624 NW Glisan). The show is from 7pm until 9pm, but arrive early (5pm doors open) to secure your beer, grub, and a seat! There’s a $3.00 suggested donation/cover charge. Minors with adults are welcome, otherwise this event is 21 and over.
