How we see science and its place in our world has a lot to do with who we see doing it and what’s being done. The images and representations we engage with through popular culture spark our imagination, inform our values, and shape our understanding of scientists, their work, technology, the natural world, and the cosmos. So it bodes well that as science reveals new visions and dimensions of nature, storytellers are exploring different ways of seeing, bending those perceptions through fresh stories and innovative approaches to narrative, style, and performance. Join Darren Aronofsky (SPHERES: Songs of Spacetime), Kevin Hand (Planetary Scientist/Astrobiology, Project Scientist for the Europa Lander Mission Concept), Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures, Shape of Water), Shonte Tucker (Systems Engineer at NASA/JPL), and moderator Kerry Bishé (Halt and Catch Fire).
