Science in the Movies: Fact Vs Fiction

This event is over.

Date:Saturday October 10 2020

Time:20:30 - 21:30


Science has been a great friend to the movies, a prop on which to build stories and create new realities. But have the movies been good to science in return? Often the answer is yes, with NASA or other specialist scientific advisers, but sometimes the fiction presented as fact would make the true scientists squirm in their seats.

Join us for an evening in the company of scientists courtesy of I-LOFAR, looking at the wins and the fails of how science is used and represented in the movies.
