    About

    Take part in three days of eclipse-related programming from April 7- 9, as part of Simons Foundation’s “In the Path of Totality” initiative celebrating the first total solar eclipse in Austin, TX since 1397.

    The festivities kick off with Maria Popova’s The Universe in Verse, featuring musician David Byrne and On Being creator Krista Tippett, on April 7 at 6pm at Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park!

    Created and hosted by writer Maria Popova, The Universe in Verse is a charitable celebration of science and the wonder of reality, winged with poetry and music. Every spring since 2017, thousands of people have gathered in atoms to savor stories about scientific phenomena, discoveries, and forgotten visionaries from the history of science, paired with poems read by beloved cultural icons — musicians and writers, artists and astronauts, physicists and poets.
