Preliminary Draft Program Grid for Christopher Weuve

This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. Christopher Weuve may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Friday 7:00 pm: War on Science? (Ends at: 7:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists: Inge Heyer, Walter H. Hunt, Sam Scheiner, Michael A. Ventrella (M), Christopher Weuve
Some of America's leaders don't believe in global warming, want creationism taught in schools, and others want to ban human cloning or restrict genetic modified foods. Why this distrust of science? Is it growing? Are political leaders trying to appeal to the ignorant or do they really believe this? And what is the danger to the planet?
Saturday 2:00 pm: Space Warfare (Ends at: 2:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: Charles E. Gannon, Carolyn Ives Gilman, Bud Sparhawk, Christopher Weuve (M), K. Ceres Wright
Is war in space inevitable? How might it be fought? How can writers write about it in realistic ways? What writers/TV shows do a good job? Is there a way to do this without treating spaceships like warships or rewriting the Napoleonic wars?
Saturday 4:00 pm: E.T. Phone Earth. First Contact and Alien Communication (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists: Charles E. Gannon (M), Carolyn Ives Gilman, Diana Peterfreund, Christopher Weuve
What happens when humans meet aliens? How might we communicate with them? What barriers stand in the way? How have different SF stories, TV shows, and movies addressed this situation?
Sunday 2:00 pm: Even Hard SF Uses FTL (Ends at: 2:55 pm) Frederick
Panelists: John Ashmead (M), Charles E. Gannon, Inge Heyer, Christopher Weuve
What science is taken for granted in SF and can it really happen? What new scientific discoveries are more likely than others? What science is underused in SF?
