President’s

message With cooler days and crisper nights comes the advent of a new UConn Women’s Basketball season, and we couldn't be more excited. We’re gearing up with new episodes of The Geno Auriemma Show and a whole series of action-packed UConn games, kicking off on Sunday, November 13 when the Huskies take on Holy Cross at Gampel Pavilion.

But before the opening game, catch the premiere of You Make the Call: A Geno Auriemma Special on November 1 at 8 p.m. UConn Women’s head coach Geno Auriemma and commentator Meghan Culmo take questions from audience members watching from home. Don’t miss this exciting television event, and maybe even contribute your own burning questions about the 2011-2012 Huskies lineup! And stay tuned throughout the season for information on how you can get tickets to be in the audience for The Geno Show: Special Edition, which will be filmed live in Hartford on February 9 of next year.

NOVA: THE FABRIC OF THE COSMOS -- SPACE, TIME, QUANTUM, MULTIVERSE Premieres Wednesdays, November 2 to November 23 at 9 p.m. Acclaimed physicist and host Brian Greene lets NOVA viewers in on a potentially problematic secret: We’ve all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe—that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists—just might be wrong. In "The Fabric of the Cosmos," a new four-hour NOVA special series, Greene takes viewers on a mind-bending reality check and journey to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time, and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize—a complex and startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected. Based on Greene’s best-selling book The Fabric of the Cosmos, the new NOVA series offers the most visually compelling and entertaining presentation of modern physics ever seen on television—interweaving provocative theories, experiments, and stories with crystal-clear explanations and imaginative metaphors, as well as state-of-the-art computer graphics. "The NOVA series is a journey that challenges audiences on things they take for granted and is an exciting opportunity to change that mindset in startling ways," says Greene. "It will convince people that everyday perception is a thoroughly, completely, profoundly misleading guide to the true nature of what is actually out there."

n "What Is Space?" (Premieres Wednesday, November 2 at 9 p.m.) - From the passenger seat of a New York cab driving near the speed of light to a pool hall where billiard tables do fantastical things, Greene reveals space as a dynamic fabric that can stretch, twist, warp, and ripple under the influence of gravity. Space, far from being empty, is filled with some of the deepest mysteries of all time. n "The Illusion of Time" (Premieres Wednesday, November 9 at 9 p.m.) - Greene takes viewers on the ultimate time traveling adventure, hurtling 50 years into the future before stepping into a wormhole to travel back to the past. Along the way, he will reveal a new way of thinking about time in which moments past, present, and future—from the reign of T. rex to the birth of a person's great-greatgrandchildren—exist all at once. n "Quantum Leap" (Premieres Wednesday, November 16 at 9 p.m.) - Journey on a wild ride into the weird realm of quantum physics, which governs the universe on the tiniest of scales. Greene brings quantum mechanics to life in a nightclub like no other, where objects pop in and out of existence and things over here can affect others over there, instantaneously—without anything crossing the space between them. n "Universe or Multiverse?" (Premieres Wednesday, November 23 at 9 p.m.) - Greene hosts a tour of a brave new theory at the frontier of physics: that the universe we know may not be the only one in space. Instead, it may be just one of an infinite number of worlds that make up the multiverse. It won’t be easy to prove, but if it’s right, our current understanding of space and time will never be the same.
