ConCarolinas (concarolinas.org) has scheduled my panels! It’s real – I mean, really real! I’m going and I have things I am going to be doing!
Going to need to pack, and get the panels together, and talk to people, and post and ….squeal – I should absolutely squeal!
FRIDAY June 3rd
Scientific Discoveries made during the last 12 months. (oooh, I need to get on that research ASAP.)
SATURDAY June 4th
Why don’t more women go into science? What can we do to promote women to go into science? Why do we even need more women in science in the first place?
Discussion of recent medical research aimed at extending human lifespan. Not if it’s appropriate, just what has been done.
A formal search for extraterrestrial intelligence has been in place for 50 years without meaningful result. Are we alone in the universe? And if we aren’t alone, then why haven’t we heard from anyone else?
This year, the International Commission on Stratigraphy is set to decide whether or not the Earth has entered a new geological epoch: The Anthropocene. This is an age when human activity is a geological force writing itself into the very stones of the planet. What is the evidence that a new age has dawned? Do the geological footprints we’ve already left on the planet give us any guidance on how to move forward in the future? (This one is going to be great! – oh, wow, did my day start at 10 am?)
