MIT and their Media Lab are prominent fixtures in the Marvel Universe. Tony Stark, Otto Octavius, Reed Richards, Riri Williams, and Sue Storm are all MIT alums. While MIT has inspired Marvel, the reverse is even more the case. Many of the real-world students, faculty, and alumni of the school are inventing amazing technologies (not to mention creative media) based on what they've seen from comic book characters on screen and in print. Panelists Dr. Katy Croff Bell (director of the Media Lab Open Ocean initiative), Dr. Danielle Wood (director, Space Enabled Research Group, MIT Media Lab), Alexis Hope (creative director, TEN FWD; MIT Media Lab alum), Selam Gano (MIT Media Lab undergraduate researcher) and moderator Cady Coleman (NASA astronaut, retired) will profile the cutting-edge technologies and storytelling coming out of this Cambridge MA think-tank.
