I'm very excited to be heading up to Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, August 1, to give my "Death from the Skies!" talk at the Bagdad Theater. This is part of the OMSI Science Pub series, a laid-back event where people like me talk to people like you about stuff like science. In my case, I'll be talking asteroid impacts and crispy dinosaurs and making fun of the movie "Armageddon" and then saving the world. This talk is open to the public and starts at 7:00 p.m. (doors open at 5). Tickets are $20 and are available for purchase online. The Oregon Space Grant blog has more info too. I'll be doing a book signing afterwards, too. I've never been to Portland, so I'm pretty happy about this. I like Oregon quite a bit.
