Don your protective eyewear -- it's time, once again, for the third annual Cambridge Science Festival: nine straight days of geek wizardry atom-smashed together into one single brain-bending event.

Having never been to Boston's Comic Con before, I can't speak to what you should expect -- though their website should do the job for me. Compared to New York Comic Con's holy-shit-hugeness, Boston has a long way to go, but surely there are enough comic book fans in Beantown to beef up attendance and help the home team. Given the remarkably low price of $10 per day, even geeks strapped for cash have no excuse to not make an appearance at the Back Bay Events Center this weekend.
