    And again, my welcome is not just to everyone here in the Lady Mitchell Hall, but to everyone in the * the video link and many many thousands of people around the world.

    clip 2
    Science fiction is the prophecy of our age, and it *, really as far back as Cloud Cuckoo Land as Aristophanes where the scholars bent over to study geophysics while * investigated astronomy. But, I mean seriously, who can think about the Apollo program without * or look even more recently at a repulsively corrupt politician without thinking about *.

    Well, they are not that abnormal: Lady Mitchell Hall, "it has a pedigree" "with their rumps in the air", "Jules Verne" and "Jabba the Hutt"
