Here lie deceased explanations Done in by controlled exploration. These theories, once bold, Can now be retold Without fearing their reincarnation. —co-written by Craig Anderson, Kevin Boyd, Hugh McDonald, and Megan Pruiett

On the eve of the eve of All-Hallow's Eve, we bring one of our favorite annual events, the Cemetery of Dead Science, online. While we look to science as a trusted source for understanding the world around us, knowledge is ever-evolving. Tonight, we'll look at debunked science from pasts both distanced and recent. We'll also dig into the scientific process to better understand how questionable concepts can gain legitimacy.

This month's After Dark Online is a get-together to fall apart. As autumn sets in, trees become bare, and the northern hemisphere begins to chill, we're exploring processes of decay, entropy, and how things come apart, making way for revisions and new arrangements.

This event features: Odd Salon: DECAY—An Exploratorium residency In October, we're pleased to partner with Odd Salon for stories of entropy told through the annals of science, history, art, and adventure.


Date and Time: On Thursday October 29, 2020 at 7:00 pm (ends Thursday October 29, 2020 at 10:00 pm)
