W. Patrick McCray: The Visioneers of Speculative Technologies
In 1969, physicist Gerard O’Neill began looking to space colonies as humanity’s new frontier; a decade later, engineer Eric Drexler turned his attention to the molecular world. These modern utopians predicted their technologies could transform society. W. Patrick McCray, author of The Visioneers, examines the successes and pitfalls the scientists encountered.
Tickets available at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Cash or check only.
