The Science of Star Wars – presented by Professor Martin Hendry
Since the 1970s generations of moviegoers have marvelled at the Star Wars universe.
But how much real science is up there on the big screen? Could we ever travel to other planets, crossing the vast distances between star systems using shortcuts through hyperspace?
What kinds of alien worlds might exist in our Universe, and could they bear life forms that resemble the creatures found in Star Wars?
Could a Jedi Knight really fight with a light sabre?
Could the Death Star really blow up a planet?
In this lecture astrophysicist and life-long Star Wars fan Professor Martin Hendry explores the science of Star Wars.
Come along and feel the force!
Lecture begins at 7.00pm.
