After crash landing in a South London estate, vicious and near- invisible beasts from space stalk the residents. However they are prepared to fight back... and then some. After the screening, Royal Observatory astronomer Dr. Ed Bloomer will talk about some of the science fact behind the fiction, including near-invisible materials and echolocation. This event is part of the Royal Observatory Greenwich's 'Universe Unseen' season (April - September 2018).
