We are excited to report that the World Science Festival is returning for its second year next week in New York City. The five-day program of events is jam-packed with amazing sessions that explore intriguing subjects such as nothingness, the science of traffic, perception of the human face, the neural basis for our enjoyment of music and the nature of time.

The TED Blog covered the World Science Festival in 2008, and this year we’ll be dispatching more of our staffers to the sure-to-be fascinating events. Many TEDsters will be participating in the programming: Hod Lipson, Emily Levine, Sylvia Earle and others. TEDster Brian Greene was a co-founder of the festival.

The events run from Wednesday, June 10th to Sunday, June 14th.
