Physics contest winners

Yesterday, I asked you to submit your physics questions for a chance to win either VIP tickets to see Brian Greene tonight in New York City, or a DVD set of Greene's new NOVA series. I did the drawing this morning and the winners are:

Kevin Harrelson — Proud new owner of a DVD set of Brian Greene's Fabric of the Cosmos!

r matt — You're going to see Brian Greene live tonight in New York!

Both of you need to contact me to claim your prizes. You can reach me by email at maggie (dot) koerth (at) gmail (dot) com.

Remember: Not being chosen as the winner of the drawing doesn't mean your question won't make it into Brian Greene's hand. I'm sending on all the great questions from yesterday's thread to the fine folks at the World Science Festival. Watch the live stream tonight, starting at 10:00 pm Eastern, to see if your question made it!

    1. I’m not trying to hate but I just read r matt‘s post in the other thread and I still don’t know what the question is.  

      1. Hey guys, the winners were chosen at random from among all the people who submitted questions. Random is Random. 

        I sent ALL the questions on to the World Science Festival, though. And I highlighted the questions that were my favorites for them. So if you’re worried about the best question being the one asked to Dr. Greene, our bases are covered. 

        What questions the WSF doesn’t use in the live show tonight, I’m going to keep around and do something with in the near future. What, I’m not entirely clear yet. But something. And there will be stickers and/or pins for the people whose questions I use then. Sound good? 

  1. Remember: NOT being chosen as the winner of the drawing doesn’t mean your question won’t make it into Brian Greene’s hand.

  2. I just went back & read it too, and I agree (WTF?!?!). I think we can do better.  Maggie, can we have a second-chance raffle?

  3. Yes, the contest wasn’t based on content. We got some great questions that Maggie sent over. They will definitely find their way onto tonight’s show. Thanks for participating. And thanks for giving a damn. See you tonight:
