Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas 2017 is proud to present:
Outer Space – The Next Empire?
An arts meet science show where we are exploring outer space!
Space innovation researcher Matjaz Vidmar and acclaimed author Pippa Goldschmidt tell a tale of exploration, exploitation and destruction - or perhaps they are just imagining it all?
We will be discussing:
Who owns outer space and its exploration and exploitation becoming “business as usual”?
Is anyone ensuring that the alien equivalent of dodos will survive any future encounter with us?
Are we alone in the Universe or are we just lonely?
Come along to find out and have your say on the future of human activity in outer space!
Outer Space – The Next Empire? is on 5th August, 1.50-2.50pm, at the New Town Theatre in George Street.
Tickets can be bought via the Fringe Box Office or on-line: www.bit.ly/OuterSpaceEmpire
