The Hacker's Guide to the Galaxy

A session at dConstruct 2012

Friday 7th September, 2012

12:30pm to 1:00pm (GMT)

Don't panic: the next big science revolution isn't just for asteroid miners or CERN scientists.

Just as science fiction has often shown the way to future inventions, the act of hacking is now generating prototypes that act as footholds for future explorations, discoveries and epiphanies in science. This presentation takes you on a tour of our universe (from black holes and dark matter to exoplanets and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence) and shows you how you can actively explore the final frontier through getting excited and making things.
