The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation is organising an event called Science Fact or Fiction at University of Technology Sydney on the 20th August. It is about “engaging the general public in science via the format of watching popular science fiction films and is part of National Science Week and the Ultimo Science Festival.” Sounds pretty awesome!
They’re screening movies and discussing the science of things like telekinesis, light sabres & time travel. See their website and facebook page. Tickets are being sold through Moshtix at $15 for adults, $10 for children and $35 for families (two adults and two children). See www.moshtix.com.au
