Science of Star Wars
What might a “galaxy far, far away” be like? Ever wonder if, one day, you’ll be able to wield a lightsaber? Join professors from Georgia Tech for a discussion on the science and technology featured in Star Wars. Experts in astrobiology, robotics for exploring icy planets, and human-robot interactions will share their favorite technologies from the films and answer your questions. Stay late for "Investigating the Nanoscale," beginning at 11:00 am.
This event meets in Rooms 1116-1118.
