Explore strange worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before with the Center for Science and the Imagination and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Join us for a screening of the episode “Evolution” and a conversation about space exploration, nanorobotics, and the ethical and scientific dimensions of synthetic life.

The conversation will feature astronomer, lecturer, author and Slate blogger Phil Plait (a.k.a. The Bad Astronomer) and Karmella Haynes, a synthetic biology researcher at ASU’s School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering. Ed Finn, director of the Center for Science and the Imagination, will moderate.

Note: Unlike our normal Science Fiction TV Dinners, we will not be serving a full meal at this event. Each guest will receive a special space-themed treat at the end of the evening!

This event is co-sponsored by SpaceVision, the largest student-organized space conference in the nation. SpaceVision 2013 takes place at Arizona State University from November 7-10. Learn more at spacevision.seds.org.
