Isaac Asmiov Memorial Debate

March 21 at 7pm

American Museum of Natural History

200 Central Park West, New York, NY

Major advances in energy production and the urgency of the climate change crisis are re-shaping the conversation about what we use to power our world: fossil fuels, wind turbines, hydroelectric, solar panels, nuclear fission, and nuclear fusion. Many see the ability to harness nuclear energy as a clear positive for reducing our impact on global climate, while some are skeptical of its practicality and safety for everyday use. Join Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, and our panel of experts from various sectors on this issue for a compelling discussion about today’s energy landscape and what we can expect in the future. The 2023 Isaac Asmiov Memorial Debate: The Future of Energy will be held in the LeFrak Theater. Tickets for this on-site event are $25 general admission and $15 for Museum Members.

These fashions, introduced in 1966 as a promotional campaign for Scott Paper Company, combined bold, graphic design with space-age innovations in materials. Surfacing a little-known chapter in the history of design, Generation Paper illuminates the creative partnerships of craft and commerce in the development of semi-synthetic and synthetic materials.
