Trending: ‘Ultima Thule’ no more: New Horizons’ space snowman is named Arrokoth

— Halloween is just a couple weeks away and the Pacific Science Center is celebrating the holiday with a spooky event focused on a Scottish king who was immortalized in a play by Shakespeare: Macbeth. Shakespeare’s play tells the story with a supernatural element. The king was supposedly guided by a trio of witches known as the Weird Sisters. But did these women possess magical powers or were they simply masters of manipulation using real aspects of the human mind? Dr. Kaitlyn Casimo will present information on the science of decision-making and the parts of the brain that influence it during The Crimes of Macbeth: Witchcraft or Neuropsychology, which takes place at the Pacific Science Center on Oct. 30.

— While most comic conventions have expanded to include multiple facets of pop culture, The Jet City Comic Show aims to keep the focus on comic books and their creators. The show is celebrating its 10th anniversary and continues to get bigger every year. This year’s show takes place Oct. 26-27 at the Tacoma Convention Center.
