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.
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.
