Wonderfest and SF in SF present

The Road to Europa

Europa Report

following with discussion with Dr. Chris McKay

Monday June 30
Dinner, a movie, and discussion
Event begins at 7PM – General seating

“Europa Report” is, scientifically and dramatically, one of the best science fiction films to come along in years. According to Popular Science, it “sets a new standard for realism in sci-fi.” The only way that Wonderfest and SF in SF can improve “Europa Report” is to follow it with the insights of legendary astrobiologist Dr. Chris McKay. McKay will likely poke some intriguing holes in Europa Report. In doing so, he will vastly increase our understanding of interplanetary travel AND of hypothetical life in Europa’s temperate ocean –– in orbit around mighty Jupiter.

This event takes place at the SoMa StrEat Food Park, 428 — 11th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 This outdoor space, with covered, heated area for the event, is smack in the middle of a food truck paradise! Come early, to get yourself dinner, and sit down to enjoy the movie and discussion afterwards! Lots of street parking, or plan your trip via BART and MUNI here.

This is a FREE event, but please RSVP here so that a seat (or seats!) get saved for you!
