Magic Mirrors, Flying Machines, and Ancient Technology

November 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Magic Mirrors, Flying Machines, and Ancient Technology

Ancient Chinese sources describe some very modern-sounding technologies, including special mirrors that can look inside the body to find illnesses and vehicles that can fly. What inspired the writers of ancient texts to speculate about such advanced technological concepts? And what happened to that knowledge?

Join Benjamin B. Olshin for a talk that will explore possible answers to these questions and introduce a compelling historical mystery.
