Book Talk at NASA, Fire Alert, and More…


Book Talk at NASA on March 15 organized by Women’s Influence Network (WIN). It was a wonderful event and over hundred people showed up. However, I didn’t get a chance to finish my talk. Why?

I had a slide up about the Cinema Rex fire/arson on August 19, 1978 in Abadan, Iran that claimed many lives–an event that many historians believe was the key that triggered the 1979 Iranian revolution. As I was discussing the event a lady rushed up to the stage, grabbed the microphone and said, “Smoke is coming out of the control room. Please leave the auditorium immediately.”

I am going back to NASA to finish my talk, hopefully soon. Stay tuned!
