It's like the return of the swallows to San Juan Capistrano, only with better costumes: the last weekend in July tens of thousands of comic and science fiction fans will descend on San Diego. Yes, it's Comic-Con, one of the largest comic book and science fiction & fantasy conventions anywhere. This year they are convening a panel after my own heart: science in science fiction. So far the confirmed panelists are Phil "Bad Astronomy" Plait and Jaime Paglia, creator and executive producer of Eureka. There are also some "special guests" who have yet to be announced - ideally there will be at least one with a biology background. And I hope that someone out there records the panel for those of us who will be staying home that weekend.
