Great Scott! Today marks an important day in American history (or, at least, in American cinematic history):
It’s the date to which Marty McFly traveled into the “future” in Back to the Future Part II.
We’ve come a long way in the 30 years that have passed since the original Back to the Future came out.
Tomorrow, we’ll host a series of conversations with scientists and innovators across the government and the country. You’ll be able to ask them questions, watch videos explaining their cutting-edge developments, and share your answer to a simple question we’ll be asking people all day long:
Take a look at the schedule, get your questions ready, and follow along all day long at WhiteHouse.gov/Back-To-The-Future. You can share your thoughts and ask your questions using hashtag #BackToTheFutureDay.
Here’s a quick look at what you can look forward to over the course of the day:
- A conversation with physicists about the future of time travel
- A demo of a real-life “invisibility cloak”
- A virtual panel about breakthroughs in our study of the human brain
- A conversation about the future of autonomous vehicles
And a lot more.
We can’t wait to start the conversation.
(But to be clear, where we’re going — we’re probably still going to need roads.) (cc: Members of Congress holding up transportation funding).
Talk to you tomorrow!
