Andy Weir to Headline Inaugural Science and Society Keynote

Andy Weir built a 2-decade career as a software engineer until the success of his first published novel, The Martian, reached #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. The book was adapted into a Golden Globe winning feature film, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon, allowing him to live out his dream of writing full-time.
