Warp speed!

As an extension of the Comic-Con Museum’s months-long celebration of the life, legacy, and vision of Gene Roddenberry, we’re proud to offer this hour-long panel discussing science and science fiction and how each has influenced the other. If you’ve ever wondered about the scientific basis for warp drive, transporters and other technologies in Star Trek, as well as their analogs in nuclear fusion, particle physics, and other fields, you won’t want to miss this one! Scientists and physicists from General Atomics and Star Trek comic-book writers will engage in a spirited conversation about the science of Star Trek, its real-world extensions, and the future of technology in worlds both fictional and real! Engage!

Admission: Free to museum attendees. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Day & Time: Saturday, April 23, 2:00-3:00 p.m.

Location:  The theater at the Comic-Con Museum
