TED talk vet to speak at Purdue

Oct. 28. 6 p.m. Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse. TED talk veteran, author and astronomer Phil Plait will be the first speaker in a new series of Science Talks at Purdue University. Plait will discuss the ways the world might end in a scientifically-based but entertaining look at giant impacts from cosmic objects, including asteroids, cometary debris and extinction-level events. He’ll talk about how these events have shaped our history, how they could do so again and why Hollywood always seems to get them wrong.
