Science Fiction:
The Predictor of the Future
or
A Reflector of the Present?



Take Part in a Lecture with Professor Bob Heath. October 20, 2010
4th Floor Tomas Rivera Library
3:00pm - 5:00pm

Professor Bob Heath will be speaking about exploring ways in which scientific concepts and inventive technology interact with fundamental areas of human cultural development, such as ethics and politics. Science fiction can be thought of as the "workshop"  in which new ways of seeing the physical and biological world are studied in terms of their impact on human beings and institutions.

Bob Heath, native Californian, possesses a B.S. in Physics from Cal Tech, an M.S. in Physics from the University of Michigan, and a Ph.D. in Biophysics from UC Berkeley. He came to UCR in 1969, after a postdoctoral period at Brookhaven National Laboratories on Long Island, NY, studying the fundamentals of photosynthesis. He retired in 2007 but is still writing about and teaching in biochemistry.
