Time Since Einstein: A Can’t Miss Panel at the World Science Festival

…which I sadly will miss since I'll be en route to South Africa. This panel promises to be tour de force.

Time Since Einstein

Saturday, June 13, 2009, 4:00 PM5:30 PM,

Albert Einstein shattered previous ideas about time, but left many pivotal questions unanswered: Does time have a beginning? An end? Why does it move in only one direction? Is it real, or something our minds impose on reality? Journalist John Hockenberry leads a distinguished panel, including renowned physicist Sir Roger Penrose and prominent philosopher David Albert, as they explore the nature of time.

David Albert, Sean Carroll, George Ellis, Michael Heller, John Hockenberry, Fotini Markopoulou-Kalamara, and Sir Roger Penrose. I don't if there are tickets left, but I'd love a report on the panel from one of our readers, or maybe Sean will post something.
