The popular Science On Screen series continues Dec. 17 in Santa Fe with SFI Omidyar Fellow Eric Libby presenting Alien.
“In space, no one can hear you scream.” Ridley Scott’s unbeatable 1979 sci-fi horror classic follows a spacecraft invaded by a maleficent creature bent on relentless parasitic reproduction. SFI Omidyar Postdoctoral Fellow Eric Libby, a biologist with a fascination with how cells mutate and evolve into new organisms, delivers the context.
The show begins at 7 p.m. at the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA), 1050 Old Pecos Trail, in Santa Fe. Advance tickets are recommended. For tickets and prices, call the CCA Box Office at 505.982.1338.
