Sector 10: Science & Technology

The Science & Technology Sector focuses on the unremitting advance of technology, which at times has exceeded the speed of Moore’s Law and now exceeds the breadth of humanity’s collective wisdom. This Sector also follows Futurists who professionally monitor developing technologies – such as nanotechnology and artificial intelligence – which one day may lead to a “Trans-Human Era” and possibly a “Post-Human Era.” In this regard, the Peace Pentagon HUB aligns with the work of MIT’s Future of Life Institute founded by Stephen Hawking and other concerned scientists.

Rocks from Space:
Be Grateful and a Little Afraid

Carnegie Institution for Science
Washington, DC
ROCKet Man

“Rocks” from space have had a profound influence on the evolution of Earth – from the giant impact that created the Moon, to the asteroids that killed off the dinosaurs and, more locally, created the Chesapeake Bay, to tiny grains that may have brought prebiotic molecules that helped kick start life on Earth. In this talk, Dr. Conel Alexander will review where and how meteorites and cosmic dust are collected, and what they have taught us about the origin and early evolution of our Solar System.

Date: April 27 @ 6:30 – 7:30 pm
Cost: FREE. Registration is required.
