Join our own Janet Johnston at Boskone 54, New England’s longest-running science fiction and fantasy convention. It’s being held this year from February 17-19, 2017 at the Westin Waterfront hotel in Boston, MA
Janet’s Boskone 54 Panels
Janet will be speaking on two panels this year:
- Earth 2.0: Manned Space Flight in the 21st Century
Saturday 15:00 – 16:00, Burroughs (Westin)
“From SpaceX orbital jaunts to interstellar travel, the practical boundaries of 21st-century manned space exploration are expanding with each new technical advance. What space flight possibilities have we got in the works today? What more might we achieve in the not-so-distant future? How about a little later out? What are our chances of reaching any of the potential New Earths?”
- The Year in Astronomy and Physics
Saturday 16:00 – 17:00, Burroughs (Westin)
“An annual roundup of the latest research and discoveries in two sciences that matter. Our experts will share what’s new and interesting, cutting-edge and speculative. From planets to particles, and beyond!”
It’s going to be a fun weekend filled with discussions of books, films, art, music, gaming, and more.
