MCC Liebman Speaker Series: The Science of Science Fiction
Science fiction novels set in the future often describe technologies that turn up in our current lives decades, centuries, or millennia ahead of time. We will take a look at Isaac Asimovs writings, especially his Foundation and Robot novels, and see where sci-fi has turned into sci-fact in the latter 20th and early 21st centuries.
Michelle Nichols is Director of Public Observing at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, IL, and has worked at the Adler for twenty-three years. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National-Louis University. Ms. Nichols leads all of the Adler Planetariums telescope, observatory, and public sky observing initiatives.
Other session topics in this series will include science and art; astronomy; and technology and the
brain. Future sessions will take place on Friday mornings in February, March, and April 2019.
