JOIN THE INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM FOR AN
ASTRO CAFÉ LECTURE FEATURING HOLOGRAPHER GENE DOLGOFF ON JULY 22
*****


Join the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on a trip into the future at Astro Café, featuring Gene Dolgoff, one of the world’s first holographers and the pioneering spirit behind Star Trek’s holodeck on Friday, July 22. Doors open at 6:45pm and the presentation will begin at 7:30pm at the Intrepid Museum located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue)   

Hear from visionary inventor Gene Dolgoff as you sip drinks on board the Intrepid, and then head to the flight deck for stargazing. Dolgoff, one of the first scientists to work in holography (the study of holograms), inspired Gene Roddenberry to create the holodeck featured in Star Trek. He will unveil new research on holographic theory and what it reveals about the mysterious nature of gravity.

The event is open to adults age 21 and over. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Astro Café is free, but space is limited and registration is required. To register, visit: http://my.intrepidmuseum.org/auxiliary/reserve.aspx?p=3438

 

Astro Café is a curated lecture series giving adults the opportunity to learn about the latest discoveries and innovations in astrophysics, planetary science and more. Each event features cutting-edge talks by pioneers in various scientific disciplines, drinks aboard the ship, and, on select evenings, stargazing on the flight deck with the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York.
