March 2022

Join us on March 19, 2022 for the monthly Parsec meeting at 1:00 pm (ET) on Zoom. This month will be the Confluence Program meeting.

During the March 19 th Meeting we’ll discuss panel topics for the conference such as:

  • The Drake Equation and the Fermi Paradox. If there are alien civilizations all around us, why are they invisible and silent?
  • Speculative Fiction as a Literature of Hope or Despair? Should writers point out all the ways humanity is failing, or our opportunities to transcend?
  • How Science Deals with Death and Dying. Have technology and medicine become new religions offering immortality?

These examples are just to generate ideas and discussion. Come chat with us during the March meeting to bring out the most challenging and imaginative panel topics we can think of!
