His mom was pissed that we stayed out so late. I was supposed to get him home by 10pm. We got back at 12:30 am.

Here is a video that someone uploaded of him doing some Q&A. The question was: "Will we ever explore other galaxies?":

Thanks for posting the vid! Big Grin

Hopefully the full lecture will be uploaded soon. To tell you the truth, it wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. Several of my professors had the same opinion. The beginning and end were really good, but the middle kind of fizzled out. The Q&A was really good. He apparently pocketed $20,000 for giving the talk.

That's where editing software comes in handy. Thumbsup

20,000$? Ohmy

Someone uploaded part of the lecture. They claim they missed the last 30 minutes because their SD card got full.

I interacted with him for only a minute or two. I could have talked with him longer and gotten an autograph (he wasn't signing anything in the beginning), but I had to take my nephew home.

Thank you for posting this. I needed some Neil today and this was great. I love the last bit regarding war in space.

RE: NDT is coming to my school
My sister was originally hesitant about me taking my nephew to the lecture because she was afraid that he was going to get back too late (it was a school night). She sent me an email asking what the schedule for that evening's festivities would be. I sent her this in reply...

Quote:The schedule should go something like this:

3pm - I pick Peyton up and come back to my house because I have to study for midterm on Wednesday.

6pm-ish - We get something to eat.

7pm-sh - We arrive at Millet Hall early to get good seats.

8-9pm (?) - The lecture

9:30-10pm(?) - Helicopter ride to the airport where my private jet will be waiting for us.

12am - We arrive in Las Vegas.

12:30-3am - Drugs, whores, and gambling.

3:30am - Peyton marries a stripper (I'm the best man).

6am - We arrive in Ohio.

6:30am - I drop Peyton off at your house and he gets ready for school.

Does that work good for you?

This was her reply:

Quote:You're an idiot.

She's right - you didn't leave hardly enough time between the stripper and arrival in Ohio.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
