*Wednesday, Oct 5 **| 9 pm eastern | **6 pm pacific |**Virtually Speaking
Science | ***MSNBC's *Alan Boyle* (Cosmic Log<http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/>)
talks with *Sean Carroll*,  Caltech theoretical physicist who focuses on the
structure and evolution of the universe. He’s the author of “From Eternity
to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time,” a popular-level book on
cosmology and the arrow of time, as well as a graduate textbook on general
relativity. He’s blogged for the past seven years and currently hangs out
with a few fellow scientist/bloggers at Cosmic
Variance<http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/cosmicvariance/>.
Later this month [OCTOBER] he’ll be talking about “the laws of nature and
the meaning of life” at the annual New Horizons in Science conference in
Arizona. Sean and Alan will be doing a reality check on some of the stranger
scientific concepts bubbling up in popular culture, ranging from time travel
to extra dimensions and faster-than-light particles.* *
