Salman Hameed, astronomer and Assistant Professor of Integrated Science and Humanities at Hampshire College, inaugurated T2F 2.0 with an animated talk on “Humans in the Cosmos”. He had also asked the Amastropak people to bring along a telescope – which was set up on the street for people to check out the rings of Jupiter.
Salman is the ultimate diplomat and answers questions very gracefully 😀 I managed to capture just a tiny clip during the extensive Q&A session:
Check out Salman’s post on his Science & Religion blog, “Irtiqa”, where he writes about fielding questions after public lectures.
Jehan Ara has written a detailed post about her experience at the first Science Ka Adda session held at the new T2F. Read all about it on her blog, “In the Line of Wire”.
Thank you Salman, for being so generous with your time and for making science come alive. I wish everyone could have teachers like you.
