Save the date for the 2019 Lucille Kelling Henderson Lecture on Friday, Sept. 13. Technology entrepreneur, innovator, and futurist Nova Spivack will speak at the Carolina Club beginning at 10:00am. Hosted by the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS), the lecture is free and open to the public.
Co-founder of the Arch Mission Foundation (AMF), Spivack will discuss his work with SILS Professor Paul Jones to build a 30-million page Lunar Library - the first library on a planetary body other than Earth - which crash-landed on the Moon in April 2019 and is believed to be intact.
These two libraries are expected to last for up to billions of years, making them the longest-lasting records of human civilization in our solar system.
Spivack is ranked among the Top 20 Futurists worldwide and as a Top LA Power Player in Technology. He has advised governments, presidential campaigns, Fortune 10 global corporations, leading consumer brands, venture funds, incubators, and tech startups.
Spivack is also the Founder & CEO of Magical, a science and technology venture studio based in Los Angeles, where he works as a venture producer, to fund and incubate breakthrough companies.
