A land not too far away... I don't know. Maybe it was Utah.

Do you live in Utah? Near Logan?

Then come see me destroy the world Friday night! I'm giving my "Death from the Skies!" talk at Utah State University at 7:00 p.m. on April 27 (tomorrow). I'll be in Room 130 of the Emmert Auditorium. It's open to the public and admission is free.

Yes, free. It costs nothing to wipe out life on Earth via asteroid impact.

This is part of USU's Science Unwrapped lecture series, a pretty cool idea where they have themed talks during the year. They've been doing apocalypses, which is great! I'm sorry I missed the ones on zombies and supervolcanoes, actually. Those are two of my favorites. Someone should combine them. "Super Zombie Volcanoes from Planet X!" I would totally watch that movie.
