Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Fiction, & Southern California
Most of us technonerds were (and perhaps still are) voracious consumers of the science fiction genre. From mysterious viruses to worm hole travel, interspecies bonding to invasive species resistance, utopia to dystopia, the plotline placement on an exoplanet or in another dimension made it all the more interesting. For many of us, the genre inspired and informed our path to becoming STEM professionals. For others, our STEM interests were reflected in the genre. Therefore, it is only fitting that we should be excited about the Pasadena Museum of History exhibit, “Dreaming the Universe”, that focuses on science fiction and the evolution of real-world science and technology from the 1930’s through the 1980’s. “Dreaming the Universe” shows some of the connections between the histories of science and science fiction, and Southern California through all types of media: the written word, radio, television, movies, and art. Join the LAGLS posse for a leisurely afternoon viewing on Sunday May 27, 3pm, followed by an early supper at a local restaurant.
