The fate of the universe.Posted: March 20, 2012
I saw this picture floating around Facebook today. I liked it.
How’s this for a dream gig: I’m commissioned to write a play about the CalTech physics department going on retreat and getting lost in a redwood forest and pondering the fate of the universe. To help me, I’m paired with a physicist at Fermilab who will be very nice and answer all my weird questions about “the void,” “the nature of existence” and “the Big Freeze.” In July, I’m flown to Chicago for a public staged reading of the play at Fox Valley Repertory.
Yaaahhhh I’ll take it.
