Bang! Bang! ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Meets The Big Bang Theory!

Eric L. Kaplan, executive producer of the long running CBS television series, The Big Bang Theory, and Harvard astrophysicist Robert Wilson, co-recipient of a Nobel Prize for finding signs of the real Big Bang, will join New York Times science writer Claudia Dreifus for a discussion of humor and science.

What’s funny and what’s not about the scientific enterprise? What role do serendipity and surprise play in both?

Dr. Robert Wilson is the co-discoverer of the cosmic microwave background radiation, a space echo of the real Big Bang. Mr. Kaplan, a former writer for The Simpsons and Futurama, is also the author of Does Santa Exist: A Philosophical Investigation.

Together, they will discuss the Big Bang Theory, facts, fiction and fun.
