An evening of narrow escapes, close calls, and bad-hair-day stories. Join us with or without a story.
"Der Groschen ist gefallen" - that transformative moment of understanding; gravitating towards one answer, one decision, one opinion, one perspective - and not another; the gravity / seriousness of a situation; moments where fate was completely out of your control; falling down - down the career ladder, breaking your ankle as a guinea pig for an experiment, getting big funding and bad results; your hero-to-zero moment; the aha moment after a struggle and the resulting feeling of "lightness"; attending a zero gravity disco party as an ex-astronaut; sharing your personal wonder of science.
