Rock-star astrophysicist to honor Einstein

DeGrasse Tyson To Speak At Spur East




Neil deGrasse Tyson — the rock star of astrophysics and director of New York City’s Hayden Planetarium — will be one of the speakers at the Spur East on Friday, July 26, “Celebrating a Century of Einstein’s Relativity.”

DeGrasse Tyson will be joined by comic co-host Chuck Nice and theoretical cosmologist Janna Levin for a fascinating conversation to celebrate 100 years since the confirmation of Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

The event is co-sponsored by Sci-Hamptons, Star Talk, and The Spur. The presentations will be held from 7 to 9:30 PM, followed by a VIP event in the EXLR lounge next door to the Spur, which is at 44 Three Mile Harbor Road, East Hampton.

The VIP event will include drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a meet and greet with the speakers.
