This April 21-23rd 2017 in downtown San Jose, California will feature Silicon Valley Comic Con. This year’s theme is “The Future of Humanity: Where Will We Be in 2075. Here’s where it gets even better. The convention is based on not only pop culture, but science as well. Participating supporters include NASA, Virgin Galactic, and SEDS (Students for the Exploration and Development of Space). Oh, and they just announced Carrie Fisher is one of their guests.
“Few things inspire more creativity and innovation – both from a technological and pop culture perspective – than space travel,” said Steve Wozniak. “The future of space exploration is so exciting: by 2075, will we have discovered aliens? Made private space travel affordable and commonplace? Shifted our manufacturing to space factories? Colonized Mars? Established our first Starfleet Academy? Formed a Galactic Senate?”
Also attending are the Director of the search for extraterrestrials at the SETI Institute in California Seth Shostak, theoretical astrophysicist Janna Levin, and acclaimed linguist Jessica Coon. Levin and a team of scientists confirmed Einstein’s prediction of gravitational waves. Even the author of The Martian, Andy Weird, will be there.
In addition, there will be a great show floor and a Space Exploration Zone.
“We don’t want to spoil the surprise for attendees by giving away too many details, but our Space Exploration Zone will feature interactive displays, spaceship models, educational exhibits and more! Our goal is to celebrate the incredible innovation taking place in the field, and to inspire people about the potential for humanity outside Earth,” said Trip Hunter, CEO of Silicon Valley Comic Con. “Beyond space travel, we’ll reveal more details about the other zones and programming tracks as the show draws near.”
