Theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University and author of "The Physics of Star Trek" and  his most recent book "The Universe from Nothing," will join a panel on "The Science of Space: Building the Future" to be held at 7 p.m. Friday, March 22, in room 101 of Montana State University's Gaines Hall.

A theoretical physicist and cosmologist and advocate of scientific skepticism, Krauss is frequently a commentator on television shows such as the "Colbert Report" and has written editorials for the New York Times. He will join David Fortin and Bill Rea of the MSU School of Architecture faculty in a discussion about the relationships between architecture and science.

Fortin recently published a book, "Architecture and Science-Fiction Film: Philip K. Dick and the Spectacle of Home." Rea has been a set designer and art director on numerous feature films, including "Titanic," "True Lies" and "Ali."

 The panel discussion is part of the President's Fine Arts Series, "Art of Science/Science of Art" sponsored by the MSU College of Arts and Architecture. For more information about "Art of Science/Science of Art," go to the President's Fine Arts Series
