ANN ARBOR, Mich. – On Nov. 21, bring your own nerd herd to experience the science behind Nerd Nite A2 “Weigh of Life - Seeing, Understanding, and Existing in the Universe.”

Starting at 7 p.m. at LIVE, listen to three talks from three passionate presenters on three topics involving weight and the human body.

Explore the universe with University of Michigan physics Ph.D. candidate, Maya Mallaby-Kay, as she discusses scientific attempts to weigh the universe. U-M associate professor of Astronomy, Keren Sharon will explain gravitational lensing (don’t worry, we had to Google that too), and Onna Solomon, a clinical social worker and therapist, will dissect the aspects of being a functional human being.

Doors for the event will open at 6:30 p.m.

All Nerd Nite Ann Arbor presentations held on the third Thursday of every month and are free due to the generosity of the Ann Arbor District Library.
