In late May 2012, Adam will be presenting a talk on “The Science and Technology of 2001: A Space Odyssey” at Wonderfest with a slideshow of images, 90% of which have never been published, including blueprints, model photos, and much more. You may recognize Adam from his AJA Models, producer of some of the best 2001 resin kits ever!

, founder of the Overview Concept, returns. Frank will be updating us on the impact on The Overview Effect from the release of the recent film and much more.
Frank White is a writer who has spent much of his career thinking about the implications of space exploration for human evolution. He has authored a total of 10 books, including: The Overview Effect, The SETI Factor, The New Camelot, March of the Millennia and Think About Space (with Isaac Asimov), The Ice Chronicles (with Paul Mayewski), and Decision: Earth, a novel.  Frank’s latest book, The New Camelot, offers a new interpretation of the Apollo program, comparing the Apollo astronauts to King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table, and suggesting that the Overview Effect is the “holy grail” of our time.  Recent developments in both governmental and non-governmental space exploration efforts appear to vindicate many of the ideas that were initially explicated in The Overview Effect. Frank is now working on a revision of that work, focusing on trends that have begun to appear since the first edition came out in 1987. He is a cofounder of the Overview Institute, established in part to carry forward the work that began with publication of his book, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.
