This fall, join the Linda Hall Library for a retrospective film series of Michael Crichton movies. In his work, Crichton demonstrated a keen ability to anticipate new technological developments long before they became reality and predict how even seemingly beneficial breakthroughs in biotechnology or artificial intelligence could quickly spiral out of their creators' control.

The second film in the series is Westworld from 1973, written and directed by Crichton.

A Deeper Dive: The Scientific Study of the Plate Tectonics History of the World

In this three-part Deeper Dive course, geologist Bill Shefchik will explore at a rather intense level some of the brilliant scientific tools used by geologists to understand the formation of the crust, the motions of plates, and the consequences of plate collisions. The foundation of the three classes will be the three-billion-year-old rocks of northern Scotland, which preserve vivid, visible evidence of more collisions than almost anywhere else in the world.
