On November 2, The World Science Festival, Columbia University and NOVA hosted a screening of What is Space? to coincide with the NOVA: Fabric of the Cosmos series premiere. The screening took place at Columbia’s Miller theatre and was immediately followed by a live-streamed webcast, hosted by acclaimed physicist Dr. Brian Greene. The webcast allowed the in-theatre and digital audiences to further explore the program’s rich material in direct conversation with Dr. Greene — the series’ host and best-selling author — as well as other featured program participants, including Saul Perlmutter, our local Lawrence Berkeley Lab astrophysicist and winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics.
