Baltimore Singularity

Dava Sobel, acclaimed science writer and author of the international best sellers Longitude and Galileo’s Daughter will be reading at Johns Hopkins on Friday, Feb. 27, 8 p.m. Hodson Hall.

I was just reading her most recent book, A More Perfect Heaven, which details the struggles of Copernicus to bring his Sun-centered view of the solar system to light. Challenging both the Catholic church and overcoming his own misgivings, he forever changed how we look at the cosmos.

Amazing, considering that astrology, not astronomy, was the space science of his day.

If you’re in the Baltimore area, feel free to come and hear Dava read from her newest book project, The Glass Universe.

Where: 210 Hodson Hall, Homewood Campus, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218

When: 8 p.m.

Free and Open to the public.
