Gregory Benford Talk at Vanderbilt this Thursday
I wanted to remind those of you in the Nashville area that noted science fiction writer and scientist Gregory Benford will be presenting our physics colloquium this Thursday, Oct. 8, at 3:00 in Stevenson 4327. The title of his talk is "Our Next Century in Space." The talk is free and open to the public. Parking at Vanderbilt, however, is very much not free and barely open to the public. There are pay parking spots on the ground floor of the 25th Avenue Garage, and also metered parking on the street in front of the VA hospital (both a short walk to Stevenson Center). The metered parking has a two-hour limit. I believe that there is also free on-street parking once you get far enough east of campus, but I don't know how far east you have to go. Maybe Knoxville.
