Join the Center for Science and the Imagination for our first Science Fiction TV Dinner of 2014 with Quantum Leap, an early 1990s classic that blends science fiction, actual science, and time travel with sharp social and ethical insights.
We’ll be screening the episode “The Wrong Stuff,” where genius physicist/time traveler hero Sam Beckett finds himself embroiled in a NASA research program in 1961, at the height of the Space Race between the US and the Soviet Union.
Following the screening, Center for Science and the Imagination director Ed Finn will moderate a conversation featuring Juan José Diaz Infante, artist and mission director for the Mexican Space Collective, and Micah Lande, Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering at ASU’s College of Technology and Innovation.
Free dinner will be served at the event!
