SUMMARY: Tune your television to PBS on Tuesday, October 28 for a two-hour Nova episode called "The Elegant Universe", based on the book of the same name by Brian Green. Followed by the one-hour conclusion on November 4. It'll cover the current theories about the Universe, and should put a lot of complex concepts like "string theory" into a form non-cosmologists might be able to understand. If you don't get PBS in your part of the planet, the entire show will be available online from the PBS website.

I'll be watching.

P.S. I had a warning on Friday from one reader that pointing your telescope or binoculars at the Sun for too long without a proper filter could damage it, so if you're going to project an image, only do it for a few seconds at a time to protect your equipment. And remember, don't look at the Sun directly - you could permanently damage your eyesight.
