The Physics of Star Wars

 

Age 12 +

 

Professor Carsten Welsch, Univeristy of Liverpool/ Cockcroft Institute

More than 40 years ago, on 25 May 1977, Star Wars began its world-wide success story with the first movie being launched at 32 cinemas in the USA. We will be discussing what is science and what is fiction in the Star Wars movies. This will include the physics behind the famous light sabers, hyperspace, and of course...the force. We will also link the Star Wars universe to current research into particle accelerators and show how this can be (at least) as exciting as what is shown in Star Wars. There will also be hands-on activities and opportunities to speak with our researchers. Disclaimer:

 

This is not an official Disney/Lucasfilm event.
