Scientists Who Write Science Fiction

Sunday, September 18, 2022
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

If a scientist writes SF, is it work or play? Can a good writer do great science or vice versa? Can an SF story be of any help against our world's increasingly savage assaults on science? How can rigorous data contribute to generous worldbuilding? Aside from infodumps, how do you sprinkle science dust over an entertaining story?
