Tal M. Klein (author of The Punch Escrow, now in development at Lionsgate as a major motion picture), Rick Loverd (director of the National Academy of Science and Entertainment Exchange), Dr. Steven Schowalter (quantun physicist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories), and Jonathan Taplin (director emeritus of the Annenberg Innovation Lab at the University of Southern California) discuss how contemporary science fiction has served as a lens into our future. This panel focuses on the core “fictional” technologies dreamed up in science fiction—from teleportation to replication, from cloning to the reversal of aging, to interstellar travel and beyond. A discussion on how the future might be closer than you think—and what that means.
