Dyson will speak with IMSA students and faculty on a variety of topics including space, origins of the universe, and how science and technology change society. Learn how three burgeoning technologies – solar energy, genetic engineering and the Internet could narrow the gap between rich and poor in this century. Dyson’s visions for the future include forests of genetically enhanced trees oozing high-octane fuel from their roots and laser-launched earthlings colonizing the comets of the Kuiper Belt. Are his visions convincing? You can decide by joining us at IMSA’s website.
