Imaginary Weapons - Pentagon Fringe Science - Feb 10

Sat, Feb 10, 2:30- 4:30 pm - Sharon Weinberger
Tysons-Pimmit Library, Falls Church, VA (Flyer)
Veteran defense reporter Sharon Weinberger will discuss and sign her book about the Pentagon's latest new levels of fringe-science wackiness: antimatter weapons, psychics, telepathy, nuclear hand grenades, and more.

In the spirit of Darwin Day, this talk examines deviations from critical thinking and evidence-based reasoning in military weapons development, as significant examples of how public policy making can go dangerously wrong when it is not consilient with science.
