Nerd Nite Tokyo: STAYIN' ALIVE

We made it out of 2020 and are cautiously optimistic for the new year!

  • The untold story of 'the last samurai's' death-poem and its journey from the battlefields of Shiroyama to the salons of Georgian London.

  • From humans to birds and insects, many species have a 50/50 split between females and males. But why? Economics and game theory can illuminate the battle of the sexes in biology

  • And a throwback talk on the most exciting near-disasters in space science and the lessons they have taught us about science, technology, and the human spirit.
