The Science of Dune: Technology

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Frank Herbert’s “Dune,” the game changing 1965 sci-fi novel full of space-age feudalistic intrigue, rampaging sandworms and prescient mind drugs on a desert world. Even today, the work resonates with scientific wonder and philosophical intrigue, so join Robert and Joe for a two-part exploration of the science of “Dune.” First up, consider the real-life possibilities of water-recycling stillsuits, the Holtzman Effect and the war against thinking machines.
