Welcome everyone to Future Sci Chat. This weekend we will be having the first episode of this new series, covering electric cars. We will talk about reservations people have about going electric, difficulties companies have faced for a century trying to sell this idea, and the current limitations of the technology. All in all, it should be a very fun episode!
Some of you might have seen or heard about Future Tech Chat, but have maybe found it to be a little inaccessible. I really hope you’ll enjoy some of the science topics we plan to discuss on this new show (alternative energy, GMOs, robotics, etc.), we have a lot of great stuff planned to discuss in the coming months.
This show will have the same format as Future Tech Chat, that being a 45-60 minute live show taped (usually) on Saturdays, but that can be watched at any time thereafter. We always love when we get questions from interested parties, and there is a Q&A section on Google+ where the chats are hosted, as well as in the comment section on YouTube.

I hope you’ll tune in live at 12:30 PM EDT on Saturday, June 7th for the episode, and you’ll be able to watch it in full below live or after it’s aired.
You can direct any questions you might have to the Q&A on the event page (https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cgm4ttq6b8c025plru7cru6naig). We look forward to seeing you here live!
