Maya 2012 Telecon! Mark your calendar for Dr. Anthony F. Aveni on Thursday, March 22

Join the NSN members for a teleconference with one of the most prolific and loved science writers of our time, Dr. Anthony F. Aveni, as he gets us ready to face the 2012 craze with facts and humor. We are pleased to welcome the astronomer and anthropologist that Rolling Stone magazine named one of the 10 best professors in the country. He will talk about the phenomenon of the 2012 prophecies, theories, and predictions that this date marks the end of the world, or at least the end of the world as we know it. Here's your chance to bone up on the history and science behind the mayhem to help you prep for questions from the public.

Dr. Aveni is widely known for his 16 very popular books, numerous TV appearances, and legendary classes. He is considered one of the founders of cultural astronomy and is an expert in the astronomical history of the Aztec and Maya Indians of ancient Mexico. His latest book is titled The End of Time: The Maya Mystery of 2012. He is Russell B. Colgate Distinguished University Professor of Astronomy, Anthropology, and Native American Studies at Colgate University, where he has taught since 1963.
