Good news, everyone! It's the Futurama episode. We pay tribute to our favorite episodes, and talk about other sci-fi comedy TV series you can watch after you've watched every Futurama episode twelve times. A very special guest helps us solve the math theorem created by a Futurama writer! Plus would you want to survive the collapse of civilization?
io9: We Come From the Future is a news show about science, entertainment and culture from a tomorrow that you wish you lived in today. Annalee Newitz, editor in chief of io9, and Esther Inglis Arkell, io9 writer, cover science fiction and science fact in a studio format with segments including Esther Gets Experimental, Ask a Scientist, Tragic Trailer, Doom of the Week, Trivia Quiz and This is Awesome. The show will feature field segments and interviews with scientists, experts, and authors. In a whimsical yet authentic format, Annalee and Esther will explain weird and interesting science, feature interesting material from the web, discuss popular culture in reviewing books, tv, and film, and perform fantastic experiments.
Futurama is known for many things but did you know it's also responsible for a new math theorem?! It's called Keeler's Theorem, and with the help of Kishore Hari and the Revision3 Players, Annalee demonstrates how it works!
Would You Want to Survive the End of Civilization?
We posed a question on our website - Would you want to survive the end of civilization? The answers varied but in Esther's mind unless there was technology enough to create usable corrective eye wear again it wouldn't be worth it. Annalee believes you don't need to restart from scotch and points out The Global Village Construction Set. A site dedicated to preserving the knowledge to for 50 simple designs for all the machines you need to restart civilization, from robotic arms and threshers, to a machine that can make aluminum and another that can milk cows.
