It’s Not a Zombie Apocalypse: Scientific Views of Threats to Humanity

October 23, 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Manoa Campus, Art Building Auditorium

In this season of ghosts, goblins, and zombies, the UH NASA Astrobiology Institute (UH NAI) and the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa present “It’s Not a Zombie Apocalypse: Scientific Views of Threats to Humanity," a Frontiers of Astronomy Community Event.

Axes and machetes might protect us from imaginary zombies, but what about real threats to human existence? They might come from the sky, from natural phenomena on Earth, from human activities, or from some combination thereof. These are real, though not necessarily immediate. Five panelists will discuss the threats to our existence, including astronomical, volcanic, and biological threats, as well as those from information technology.


Ticket Information
Free and open to the public. (Parking on campus costs $6.)
