Science Guests for Comicon 2016
Guests are listed in alphabetical order by first name.
 

Carl Gottlieb (born March 18, 1938) is a screenwriter, actor, comedian, and executive. He is best known for co-writing the screenplay for Jaws, as well as directing the 1981 low-budget cult film Caveman.

He began writing comedy for TV, contributing to The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour for which he won an Emmy Award in 1969, The Music Scene, The Bob Newhart Show, All in the Family, and The Odd Couple. Minor acting roles have included Robert Altman's M*A*S*H and the film Clueless. Gottlieb also cowrote David Crosby's two autobiographies, 1989's Long Time Gone and 2006's Since Then.

Gottlieb was hired as an actor to appear as Harry Meadows, the editor of the local newspaper, in Jaws. He was hired by his friend, Steven Spielberg, to redraft the script, adding more dimensions to the characters, particularly humour. Ironically, his redrafts reduced the role of Meadows (who still appears in the Town Hall corridor and the Tiger Shark scene). He wrote a book, The Jaws Log, about the notoriously difficult production of the film. Bryan Singer has referred to it as being "like a little movie director bible".[3] He was enlisted under similar circumstances to work on the Jaws 2 screenplay. He co-wrote the screenplays for The Jerk and Jaws 3-D. Gottlieb contributes to Jaws related activities, such as interviews (including the documentary The Shark Is Still Working) and attended JawsFest on Martha's Vineyard in June 2005.

Geoff Notkin starred in three seasons of the multi award-winning television adventure series Meteorite Men for Science Channel and two seasons of the educational series STEM Journals for which he received two Emmy Awards. He has also appeared in shows for Discovery, NASA EDGE, TLC, PBS, A&E, Nat Geo, History Channel, Travel Channel, and the BBC. He is a science writer, meteorite specialist, photographer, world traveler, and President of Aerolite Meteorites Inc, the world’s largest meteorite company.

Geoff has appeared on Coast to Coast and the Today show, and has been interviewed by The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Space.com, Universe Today and many other leading publications.

An award-winning author, Geoff has published hundreds of articles on meteoritics, paleontology, astronomy, adventure travel, history, and the arts, with his work appearing in Astronomy, Astronomy Now, Sky & Telescope, All About Space, USA Today, Wired, Reader’s Digest, The Village Voice, Seed, Rock & Gem, Geotimes, Meteorite, and many other national and international publications. He is the author of three books including the IPPY Award-winner Meteorite Hunting: How To Find Treasure From Space and a popular science and arts blog, Searching the Skies, for GeoffNotkin.com.

Geoff has worked with most of the world’s major institutions including The American Museum of Natural History, New York; The Natural History Museum, London; the Vienna Museum of Natural History, and The Center for Meteorite Studies at ASU, Tempe. He is a member of The Explorer’s Club, is on the Board of Governors of the National Space Society, the Advisory Board of Deep Space Industries and the Board of Directors of the Astrosociology Research Institute. The minor planet 132904, discovered at Mount Palomar, was named after Geoff in recognition of his contributions to science and education.

Adventuring has taken Geoff to forty-five countries and some of our planet’s most remote areas including northern Siberia, Chile’s Atacama Desert, the Australian Outback and he has three times crossed the Arctic Circle.

By the age of seven Geoff was already an avid rock hound, fossil collector and amateur astronomer. “I was stunned that you could see other worlds from a suburban London garden,” Geoff states. “The epiphany came when I visited London’s Geological Museum as a child. In the Hall of Meteorites I realized that studying meteorites would be the perfect combination of geology and astronomy. I have been hooked ever since.”

Geoff was born on 14th street in Manhattan and grew up in London, England. He studied in London, Boston and New York, and now resides in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.
