Fiction vs. Reality: An Investigation of Science in Movies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

UPDATED: Fri, Jul 15, 09:15AM
We love superhero and science fiction movies for their quick pace, fantastic ideas and spectacular action sequences. Cars flip into the air, trains derail and flatten everything in their paths, characters have extraordinary tools and abilities, and storylines travel throughout time and space. But could any of the imaginative scenarios we witness in action blockbusters actually happen? How often do movies reflect accurate science or realistic depictions of future technology and discoveries? How important is it for the science in fictional movies to align with reality? Join us as Fred Bronson (writer Star Trek: TNG), Adam Weiner (physics teacher, The Bishop’s School), Professor Brian Keating (astrophysicist professor, UC San Diego), Craig Titley (writer and producer Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) discuss the fine balance between storytelling, imagination, and realistic science.
