    1. Meeting Brian Greene has always been on my bucket list.. I’m excited to see that he’s coming to Tucson. Now all we need is to Get Michio Kaku to come to Tucson.

      • thanks for commenting. Yes, we are looking forward to hearing Brian Greene and participating in this Rally for Science. The flyer describes him as: one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists & a brilliant, entertaining communicator of cutting-edge scientific concepts. A Professor of Physics & Math at Columbia University, Greene has been described by the Washington Post as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today”.
