Event description
The Physics of Star Wars

About this Event

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 would like to discuss with you what is science and what is fiction in the iconic Star Wars movies and connect the Star Wars universe with current R&D in the physics department. There will also be hands-on activities and opportunities to speak with our researchers.
