first_imgFacebookTwitterPrintEmailAddThis ShareFranz [email protected], in the form of space exploration, has affected religion and culture, according to Rice Religious Studies Professor Jeff Kripal. He will look at the relationship between the history of natural science and religion during an Oct. 27 lecture titled, “Heavens Above: Space Exploration and the Religious Imagination.”Who: Jeff Kripal, the J. Newton Rayzor Professor and department chair of religious studies at Rice University.What: Lecture on “Heavens Above: Space Exploration and the Religious Imagination.”When: 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27.Where: Herzstein Hall Amphitheater on the Rice University campus, 6100 Main St.For most of recorded history, human cultures have imagined, and encountered, the sacred as a power or presence that dwells “in the heavens.” This began to change with Galileo and the Copernican Revolution and has continued to change with advances of modern science; but perhaps no series of events inspired and catalyzed the cultural and religious imagination more than the Cold War space race and the Apollo space program.Kripal will address some of the most difficult and “impossible” moments in the modern interactions between science and religion, including the rise of the UFO phenomenon, which he will discuss as a religious phenomenon. He will illustrate his ideas with examples drawn from the autobiographies of a science fiction writer, an Apollo astronaut, a horror fiction writer and a world-class scientist.The event is sponsored by the Rice’s Wiess School of Natural Sciences and the Rice Space Institute.For more details about other lectures in the series or to be added to the mailing list, go to http://spacefrontiers.rice.edu/.Members of the news media who want to attend should RSVP to Franz Brotzen at [email protected] or 713-348-6775.last_img read more
