Much of the Star Trek universe can be understood or disputed based on our current understanding of nuclear chemistry and physics. This presentation will examine "future" technologies such as photon torpedoes, transporters, and holodecks using contemporary nuclear science. We'll also boldly go where few scientists have gone before to try to understand what dilithium really is and what it does in a starship. Even if you're not a trekkie (or a trekker), don't worry, the context of each topic will be provided through video clips from the shows and movies. Engage!
