Mad Science: The Science Behind Science Fiction* Thanks to Hijinx for the heads up!
Thursday, July 23rd, 6:00-7:00
Discover magazine and the National Academy of Sciences’ Science and Entertainment Exchange explore science as a double-edged sword—ethically and morally neutral in and of itself, but it depends on who wields it and how. Join moderator Phil Plait (Discover magazine contributing editor and blogger), Jaime Paglia (co-creator and executive producer of Eureka), Kevin Grazier (science consultant Eureka, Virtuality), Jane Espenson (executive producer Dollhouse, Battlestar Galactica, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Rob Chiappetta & Glenn Whitman (staff writers, Fringe) and Ricardo Gil da Costa (neuroscientist and consultant on Fringe) for a lively and fun discussion on science used for good vs. evil. Followed by Q&A. Room 6DE
In addition to the Saturday Fringe Screening at this year's Comic-Con, there is also an additional Fringe related panel on Thursday, titled "Mad Science: The Science Behind Science Fiction"
