The Glossarch live at #ScienceFail, Morehead Planetarium, Chapel Hill, NC!

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at the Morehead Planetarium, Chapel Hill, NC on January 17th as part of the #ScienceFail event.  The show is put on by The Monti, a nonprofit organization that hosts storytellers who tell tales without the use of notes or props.  This particular one is about science experiments gone wrong, and heaven knows I have plenty of experience with that!

Featuring a UNC Chancellor, a nobel laureate (!), a couple of grad students and a postdoc, the show should be a lot of fun.  Most importantly, if you go (or listen to the podcast afterward) you can find out what the hell we’re doing with helium filled trash bags (see photo below).  Here’s the link to the show:

About glossarch

The word "glossarch" doesn't exist. At least, not yet. But let's pretend it does for a second. The first part is "gloss," a word that comes to us from Ancient Greek via Latin and English. It means "language." The second part also comes from Ancient Greek and can mean "having power over." So "glossarch" means simply "language controller." So what am I doing making up words? Well, I made up an entire language once. It's called Angosey. So I'm the Glossarch of Angosey. I'm currently a doctorate student in volcano seismology (a branch of geophysics). I enjoy writing fiction and poetry, launching balloons, programming, and hanging out with my lovely wife! Follow me on Twitter!

    Too bad it’s sold out. I live down in Emerald Isle and love any chance to head up to Chapel Hill area. What a great opportunity for you. 🙂
