NEXT: Meet Me on the Holodeck!
What's NEXT as science meets entertainment? For the latest in our science series, "NEXT: People | Science | Tomorrow," we take a roller coaster ride to the future. Along with host Mat Kaplan and science and entertainment writer David S. Cohen, we will hear how theme parks plan to keep you white knuckled and screaming from Dane Stone, recently retired as Walt Disney Imagineering's Technical Director of Ride and Show Engineering. Then our fantasies come to life in the holosuite with former Star Trek story editor, screenwriter, producer and science advisor, Andre Bormanis, author of "Star Trek: Science Logs." No E ticket required for this trip – just fasten your seatbelts and hang on tight!
