Event taking place at Grandpa's on April 1, 2014 7:30 pm

Join us as we explore the Universe together. Attend the Changchun public viewing of Cosmos: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY (2014)

Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, COSMOS will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale.

This show is a update of the groundbreaking TV series hosted by Carl Sagan from the 1970's

Don't look at me. I draw the line at dancing on bellies.

Great talk from Richard last night on being a Buddhist monk and Murin will soon be setting up the film club. All we need now is a belly dancer!
