W. Patrick McCray – The Visioneers: How a Group of Elite Scientists Pursued Space Colonies, Nanotechnologies, and a Limitless Future

Feb 7 2013 7:00 pm

A historian trained as a scientist, McCray here looks at science to formulate the future. Defining “visioneer” as a hybrid futurist, scientist, and entrepreneur, McCray focuses on K. Eric Drexler, a biotech pioneer, and on Gerard O’Neill, a physicist who inspired the L5 Society and other groups working to establish humans in space.
