Have you ever wondered how this show seems to just magically happen every year? With a lot of thought, effort, and hard work, these folks manage to help Comic-Con come together. Matt LeVeque (Show Imaging, Inc.), Phil Rabourne (Freeman Decorating), Clifford “Rip” Rippetoe (San Diego Convention Center Corp, Inc.), Steve Weathers (SEAT Planners), and Carolyn Wormser (San Diego City) will discuss the in-and-outs and the intricacies of building this massive event with moderator David Glanzer (chief communications officer, Comic-Con International).

Ripped from the Pulp: Real-World Threats to Mankind

Friday July 19, 2019 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Grand 12 & 13, Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina

Do recent shows like The Hot Zone and Chernobyl pique your interest in what calamities the human race may face in the future? Have you ever wondered how reality relates to what we see in the entertainment space? An illustrious group of scientific experts and advisors discuss some of the real challenges facing mankind and how to separate fiction from fact. Featuring Dr. Elaine Seasly, NASA deputy planetary protection officer; Supervisory Special Agent Edward You, fBI biodefense countermeasures program manager; Dr. Jessica Petrillo, State Department senior health security officer; Dr. Gregory Bernard, Homeland Security innovation officer and former Domestic Nuclear Detection Office assistant director; and Dr. Whit Anderson, deputy director, NOAA Geophysical Dynamics Lab. The panel will discuss such existential risks as extreme weather, emerging biological threats and technologies, nuclear terrorism, and threats from space and beyond and engage the audience in their questions about where the real risks to our planet and society may lie and how this often translates into popular fiction.
