“Spore” is the ultimate game of life. Play it wisely and you can evolve from a single-celled organism, swimming in salt water, to an intelligent being rocketing through the galaxy. It’s survival of the cleverest – are you game?

Join us as we attend the “Spore” launch party. Hear how the game’s primary author, Will Wright (of “SimCity” fame) simulated the arc of evolution; whether complex life is inevitable; and how SETI scientists inspired one of the most anticipated video games in history.

Also, why real human evolution is picking up the pace (did you know that blue eyes are relatively new?)… and a doctor’s film about the meaning of life.
