Renowned astrophysicist and award-winning author Ray Jayawardhana takes us on a thrilling journey into the shadowy world of neutrinos and the colorful lives of those who chase them. For more than 80 years, brilliant and eccentric scientists around the world have been searching for neutrinos—tiny but elusive subatomic particles with zero electric charge. Neutrinos may hold the secrets to the nature of antimatter and what the universe was like just seconds after the Big Bang, but they are extremely elusive and difficult to pin down—much like the scientists who doggedly pursue them.
Gather in Green-Wood’s cozy Historic Chapel for “Silent Night” – an evening of silent movies, live musical accompaniment, and hot toddies. In the age before talkies, New York City was the center of the silent film business, so it’s not surprising that several early silent movie stars are buried at Green-Wood. Silent Night” offers several short films starring Green-Wood “permanent residents” including Florence LaBadie, a wildly famous silent-era actress known as “Fearless Flo” because of her on-screen stunts; William Surrey Hart, who played a major role in the creation of Hollywood’s western movies; and Charles Inslee, who appeared in nearly 130 films and died when he was 107 or 108 years old. On the movie bill will be Westerns, comedies, and even a feminist manifesto called “Petticoat Camp.” Just like the old days, each film will be accompanied by live music. Don’t miss seeing these rare films with live music in a gorgeous silent-era chapel! Refreshments will be available for purchase during the event.
