Location: 
Library MMB

Carl Sagan's sci-fi classic has been selected as this year's Common Book. In this presentation, Dr Hemler will compare fiction with reality to answer some of these questions: What's the connection between WV and the book Contact? How do scientists currently search for extraterrestrials? How real is the science in this work of fiction? What did Hollywood "get wrong" when making the book into a movie?

Presented by: Dr. Deb Hemler, Professor of Geoscience
