Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen: Live from The Greene Space

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

7:00 PM

On November 17, Studio 360 takes you where no audience has gone before: traveling through time. In this live show hosted by Kurt Andersen at WNYC's The Greene Space (taped for later broadcast), scientists and artists explain why time travel is more than an idle fantasy.

 

Astrophysicist David Goldberg (A User's Guide to the Universe) unravels the physics of time travel. Sci-fi writer Connie Willis tells us what to do if your journey through time goes awry.  Simon Wells, the great-grandson of H.G., shares his obsession with the classic The Time Machine. Musical sensation Janelle Monae performs her 28th-century funk. And Mike Daisey drops by to give us advice from the future. 

Wine and beer reception to follow.

Studio 360's "Science & Creativity" explores the intersection of art and science. The series is supported in part by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Guests:

Mike Daisey, David Goldberg, Janelle Monáe and Simon Wells
