Just curious, how many of our BABBlers attended tonight's lecture (http://www.calacademy.org/planetarium/dean.html) by Dr. Lynn Cominsky?

"...Parking is available across the street in the UCSF Laurel Heights campus parking lot for $1.25 per night...Tickets are $4 each..."
In San Francisco???...must be some kind of time machine involved!

and she *did* mention your name during the talk :)...

for me, the highlight of the talk was the next to last question in the Q&A session......somebody asked about dark matter, and she mentioned that WIMPs supposedly annihilate each other, and that perhaps the new gamma ray telescope could be able to see this "glow" :).....and perhaps earning its PI a Nobel Prize :).......its too late, and its a long day, so I don't remember all the numbers and the names....ah, the woes of old age :).......
