Join Nerd Nite Detroit for an evening of space, time, and a bit of Dr. Who! We encourage our Whovian nerds to dress their Dr. Who best and we’ll have a portable planetarium on site courtesy of the Michigan Science Center.
Here’s a sneak peek:

What could be more interesting than looking at the majesty of the cosmos? Looking at it within a miniature planetarium set up especially for Nerd Nite, courtesy of the Michigan Science Center. 10-15 minute presentation will be going throughout the night.
Mysteries of the Cosmos
Cosmology is the study of the origin and fate of the universe. I will describe our current understanding about our universe and uncover one of science’s biggest mysteries. All this is simply illustrated on a table top.
David Cinabro is a Professor in Physics and Astronomy at Wayne State University. He studies cosmology with exploding stars and the rare behavior of sub-atomic particles.
Time Travel on the Silver Screen

His Name is NOT Doctor Who, Damnit!
Journey through time (and space) as we look at the phenomenon that is Doctor Who- his 12…er…13…er…13 and a half? incarnations, his enemies, his companions, and why you should love this show.
Bio: Chris’ favorite type of travel is through time.
