Science Vs Cinema: 'GALAXY QUEST'

Science Vs Cinema is a new monthly series exploring the awesome science behind your favorite movies. We'll explore what's right, what's wrong, and why the scientist always seems to be the first one to die in so many films. Get ready for a way-too-deep dive into the science - from the physics of spaceflight to the biology of vampires and everything in between. No movie is off limits - cult faves, Hollywood blockbusters, hidden gems. Look for surprise guest scientists and embarrassing science-themed costumes.  Hosted by science communicator Kishore Hari and astrophysicist Jeff Silverman. Making movies better with science!

Following the film, Kishore Hari (@sciencequiche) and Jeffrey Silverman (@J_M_Silverman) will discuss some of the science behind the fiction, including:  

- What Earth TV shows are aliens watching right now? 
- How heavy is that Beryllium sphere? 
- Can you really travel through black holes? 
- Is that alien atmosphere breathable? 
- IS THERE AIR? YOU DON'T KNOW!
