In his iconic weird tale, At the Mountains of Madness,  H. P. Lovecraft, wrote: "I am forced into speech because men of science have refused to follow my advice without knowing why."

Why was the fiction of Lovecraft, an amateur astronomer, cautionary of what science might discover? How accurate was Lovecraft's research?

This panel of scientists and Lovecraft experts will discuss the science, truth, and fiction behind this classic novella.
