The Burning Man Festival began with a mere handful of people in 1986 on a beach in California. Now it's an annual event that attracts 50,000 people to the high desert outside Gerlach, Nevada. Two professors from the University of Nevada, Reno, have been studying the phenomenon since 2008 and they are lecturing on their findings tonight at UNLV.
