You Are Not Special: Understanding our Big, Messy Existence with Paul Sutter

How is a galaxy billions of light-years away connected to us? Is our home nothing more than a tiny speck of blue in an ocean of night? In this exciting tour of a universe far larger than we can imagine, astrophysicist Paul M. Sutter emphasizes how amazing it is that we are part of such a huge, complex, and mysterious place—and he explores how our experience here on Earth fits into that grand context.

Join the White Salmon Valley Education Foundation on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 7 PM at Center for the Arts in Hood River as we welcome Paul Sutter.  Paul is a new, fresh voice in science communication. An astrophysicist, author, speaker, producer, and on-air host of podcasts and TV, Paul strives to bring science to new audiences. Paul breaks down formidable concepts, emphasizes the human and artistic aspects of the scientific process, and makes science accessible with his characteristic conversational and humorous approach.

Paul's Ask a Spaceman! podcast is now one of the top podcasts across all subjects globally. As a contributing editor to, Universe Today, and Forbes, his articles are syndicated to CBS News, Scientific American, MSN, and more. A go-to expert for journalists and producers, Paul regularly appears on radio, TV, and in print, including on the Science Channel, History Channel, and Weather Channel.
