 4/9/2018  – Touching the Face of the Cosmos

A one-day series of panels, presentations, and papers that explore a missing ingredient in the attempt of humanity to lift itself off this planet and explore the universe. This ingredient both precedes and exceeds science, and is not about making money or attaining military superiority. It is called sense of wonder, spirituality, or religion – the urge of every human being to know, what are we doing in this Universe? The 2015 anthology, Touching the Face of the Cosmos: On the Intersection of Space Travel and Religion, edited by Paul Levinson and Michael Waltemathe (ebook Connected Editions, paperback and hardcover Fordham University Press) assembled a group of essays and short stories by leading thinkers and writers, including one of the last interviews with John Glenn, that began to explore this issue. April 9 conference continues this exploration with:

Keynote address by Guy Consolmagno, SJ, Director of the Vatican Observatory, aka “The Pope’s Astronomer,” at 7:00pm:“Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?”

Plenary session with Molly Vozick-Levinson & Brittany Miller, the Children’s Learning Center, New York City, at 5:30pm: “What Little Children See in Space”

In this complex new era for U.S.-China relations, China Institute’s Executive Summit 2018, “U.S.-China Business in the New World Order,” will examine opportunities and challenges on the ground, far from policymakers in the respective capitals.

Historically, business has been the ballast that has anchored the U.S.-China relationship. But frustration is rising on both sides about limited market access, and policy makers are reassessing fundamental U.S.-China strategies. At this day-long conference, you will learn about risks, from capital controls to the specter of trade war, and find opportunities, from AI to green technologies and biotech, in the U.S.-China business landscape. In-depth panel discussions will help business leaders, thought leaders, and policy makers to make smarter deals, better policies, and ultimately, to develop a more nuanced understanding of today’s China.
