DNA and a Movie

By Rob Kroehler

Surprisingly, not every progressive scientific endeavor strives toward a romanticized marriage of man and machine, though some most definitely do. While it’s the Ray Kurzweils of the world who tend to snatch up scientific headlines by theorizing a hybridized trans-humanist view of the future that fascinates some and terrifies most, there are plenty of scientists diligently working in the shadows toward the betterment of humanity, no “trans” or “post” needed.

On Tuesday, September 30, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 East Second Street, will host the ASU Science Fiction TV Dinner, an opportunity to grab some grub from a local food truck and hear from some brilliant scientific minds laboring right here in our own backyard. The evening will also feature a screening of an episode of House, M.D., which draws thematically on the implications of such scientific advancements. Dinner is at 6 p.m., and the event begins at 7. All ages are welcome to this free event. For more details, visit www.scottsdaleperformingarts.org or call 480-499-7578.
