7pm | PHOENIX | DEJI BRYCE OLUKOTUN | NIGERIANS IN SPACE AND AFTER THE FLARE | Deji Bryce Olukotun presents the sequel to his thriller Nigerians in Space. A catastrophic solar flare reshapes our world order as we know it — in an instant, electricity grids are crippled, followed by devastating cyberattacks that paralyze all communication. With America in chaos, former NASA employee Kwesi Bracket works at the only functioning space program in the world, which just happens to be in Nigeria. With Europe, Asia, and the U.S. knocked off-line, and thousands of dead satellites about to plummet to Earth, the planet's only hope rests with the Nigerian Space Program's plan to launch a daring rescue mission to the International Space Station. With the clock ticking down, Bracket must confront the looming threats to the spaceport in order to launch a harrowing rescue mission into space. Olukotun will be in conversation with Ed Finn, founding director of the Center for Science and the Imagination at ASU. More »
