Sept. 17th, Geeking Out: The Pioneer Detectives

Gelf is expanding to San Francisco! Join us for our premiere bay area event at the Knockout on Tuesday, September 17th for an evening devoted to mystery, science, and the temptation to believe. Konstantin Kakaes will discuss his new e-book, The Pioneer Detectives, which tells the story of the Pioneer Anomaly, an unknown force acting on the spacecraft Pioneer 10, the first man-made object to journey through the asteroid belt and visit Jupiter, eventually leaving the solar system. The Anomaly had the potential to upend Einstein and Newton—to change everything we know about the universe. You can read Kakaes's Gelf interview here.

Kakaes and Gelf editor David Goldenberg will discuss the book and what it says about how scientific knowledge gets made and unmade, how vulnerable data can be, and what the Anomaly says about the major problems of standard theories of gravity.
