Science In Science Fiction

Essential information

Date and time: 
29th January | 7pm
26th February | 7pm

Join astronomers from the Royal Observatory Greenwich as they separate science-fact from science-fiction in the films you know and love, and a few films you might not have heard of...

Starting with that classic of less-than-robust sci-fi, the 2003 film The Core, Royal Observatory Astronomer Bryony will explain why none of the "scientists" in that movie should ever have received their PhDs and go on to discuss some of the common mistakes in the most scientifically inaccurate films of the genre.

Join us for an evening of thrills, spills and pedantry as we take you on a journey through the good, the bad and the physically inaccurate.

No travel needed, just an internet connection to join us online via Zoom. Invite details will be included in an email after you have booked your place.

While having seen it is not a prerequisite to enjoy the talk, feel free to watch it beforehand before you come along!
