I am a world traveller & a mom of two, (8 & 6). I love to meet people, and am fascinated that there are 7 billion stories out there to be explored. I think Melbourne is the most happening city to live in with all the fun activities around town.

An Engagement with a Scientific Mind
If you haven't yet heard of the newest discovery making waves in the world of astronomy, you have probably missed one of the most significant findings to come along for a while. What I am talking about is the discovery of gravitational waves, the existence of which were predicted by the one and only Albert Einstein in 1916. But it was 11 February 2016, when the actual waves were observed as two black holes joined together.

Does this sound like something straight of a science fiction movie? Or perhaps some mumbo jumbo? To explain this and a lot more exciting theories that physicists are working on, Dr Brian Greene is coming to Sydney for an evening of conversation with those who are keen to learn more.

Biography of Dr Brian Greene


Dr Greene is a multi-talented physicist who is a strong believer in the string theory. He was born in New York and dropped out of high school only to graduate from Oxford University in 1987 with a doctorate in Physics.

Currently, he is a professor at Columbia University in New York. He is a believer in making physics accessible to people of all ages and interest. In this regard, he has taken several innovative initiatives, such as launching a World Science Festival in 2008, theatrical performances, a science fiction novella for children, etc.

Dr Greene has given numerous interviews in the media generating a keen interest in the general public about the mysteries of the universe.

He will be speaking at the Big Top Luna Park, Sydney on Friday 18 March, 2016 at 6pm and tickets can be purchased by clicking here. Prices vary from $9 to $249.

This should be a night that will create energy waves of its own kind.
