Cleopatra's Needle - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through June 08, 2014
The exhibition will celebrate the completion of an extensive program by the Central Park Conservancy to conserve the obelisk of Thutmose III, popularly known as "Cleopatra's Needle." Relying primarily on the Metropolitan's own collection enhanced with several important loans from local museums and private lenders, the exhibition will explore the meaning of obelisks in ancient Egyptian divine and funerary cults and will consider how these massive monuments were created and erected. An equally important part of the presentation will show the importance of this ancient architectural form in western culture and how a long-standing fascination with obelisks ultimately led to the erection of the one in Central Park. This portion of the exhibition will be illustrated through a selection of paintings, prints, textiles, and other objects from the departments of European Paintings, European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, Drawings and Prints, and the American Wing.

The Sci-Fi Universe with Brian Levine and Christina Pease - American Museum of Natural History on May 27, 2014
Theoretical astrophysicist Katherine Freese ponders the question: What is the universe made of? The longest outstanding problem in all of modern physics, this question is the most important research topic in cosmology and particle physics today. Why? Because, it is clear, the bulk of the mass in the universe consists of a new kind of dark matter particle. Dark matter searches are three-pronged: with particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, in Geneva; in underground laboratory experiments worldwide; and with astrophysical searches of dark matter annihilation products. Currently there are claimed detections in multiple experiments - but they cannot possibly all be right. Still, excitement is building in the cosmology community that the nature of the dark matter particle may soon be revealed. (read the story...)
