Atlanta's mightiest heroes have come together as a team for this special ASF event. That's right - we're bringing together superhero scientists and engineers to tell us more about what parts of superhero science are actual science and what is still science fiction.

Ever wonder if you'll have A.I. that can transition to physical form? What are the chances that aliens will look human? Will soldiers have computerized weapons systems in an armored exoskeleton suit? Moderated by Dr. Lisa Yaszek, Professor of Science Fiction Studies at Georgia Tech, our panel will feature experts in artificial intelligence, astrobiology, and nanotechnology. Come join the conversation!

The panel discussion will take place in the theater, with family friendly activities in the lobby. Free parking is available on site.
