Science Pub Develops Nanu Drinking Game Tuesday Night

Every time Mork says "Nanu," Willamette University Professor David Altman will take a drink.

Every time Altman says "Nano," you'll take a drink. Fun for everyone! And since the nanu-drinks will be microscopic, you don't have worry about getting drunk!

On Tuesday at 6:30pm at Brown's Towne Lounge, Altman will talk about the Planet Ork and "Nanotech and the Physics of the Nano-Realm":
At the leading edge of scientific advancement, nanotechnology is the study of manipulating atoms and molecules which are so small that they have properties unseen at human scale. Professor David Altman will highlight these unintuitive properties and discuss nanotechnology’s potential for advancing our understanding of physics.

A graduate of the University of Chicago and Stanford University, Altman uses a laser to study proteins in an optical trap he built with Willamette students as part of the university’s Science Collaborative Research Program. His work focuses on the molecular motor myosin, and his passion for learning and teaching is a perfect fit for Science Pub.


  1. I'm sorry I missed this. Professor Tomnus (that's David, btw) is a great guy and I would have loved to have heard him speak.
