On Tuesday, March 28, Science Friday heads to Orlando for a special night focused on Engineering the Future. Join us for a live show at the Bob Carr Theater at 7:30 p.m.
Host Ira Flatow will explore real-life inventions that show how the future is NOW! You’ll see bionic prosthetic devices that move via electrical impulses, and robotic “ants” that might one day sniff out resources on the Red Planet.
Plus, it’s way too expensive to launch water, fuel, and building materials into space—each pound of cargo runs up a $10,000 tab. The solution: Make it all in space instead! Jackie Quinn and Rob Mueller of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center will talk about space robots, like the Resource Prospector and “RASSOR,” which may someday help transform moondust into drinking water, bricks, and even rocket fuel.
To top it off, you’ll get to cheer on battling robots—built by some of Florida’s talented young engineers—while also enjoying the guitar stylings of Orlando’s own Chris Belt.
Tickets are $45. You can even meet host Ira Flatow after the show. Add $20 for a post-show meet-and-greet pass.
Support your local public radio station, 90.7 WMFE, and enjoy a science-packed night of fun! And the sooner you get your tickets, the better your seats will be — we assign from the front row to the back row based on order date. Get your tickets now: http://www.wmfe.org/science-friday-in-orlando
