The overarching question imparting urgency to this exploration is: Can U.S.-Russian contention in cyberspace cause the two nuclear superpowers to stumble into war? In considering this question we were constantly reminded of recent comments by a prominent U.S. arms control expert: At least as dangerous as the risk of an actual cyberattack, he observed, is cyber operations’ “blurring of the line between peace and war.” Or, as Nye wrote, “in the cyber realm, the difference between a weapon and a non-weapon may come down to a single line of code, or simply the intent of a computer program’s user.”
Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center invites you to attend the Boston opening of Countdown to Zero, a film by Inconvenient Truth producer Lawrence Bender that focuses on the reality of nuclear danger in today's world. A generous donor and friend of the Belfer Center has purchased a large block of seats for the opening with the goal of distributing tickets to interested individuals and organizations and increasing attention to this important film.
PLEASE NOTE THIS CHANGE: The Friday, July 30 showtime for Countdown at Kendall Square Cinema has been filled.
However, we are pleased to offer you free tickets to the screening of Countdown to Zero on the following night, SATURDAY, JULY 31 AT 7:20 PM at Kendall Square Cinema. These tickets will be held in your name for your arrival at Kendall Square Cinema Saturday night.
