WSF 2014: The Science of Star Wars
Thursday, 17 July 2014 from 19:30 to 21:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Star Wars conjures up images of spaceships, super-weapons, and all sorts of visions of the future. But the movies' immensely popular blockbusters of life in 'a galaxy far, far away' anticipate real-life future science, right here on Earth.
Author Mark Brake and TV presenter Jon Chase probe the fantastic frontier between movie magic and cutting-edge science, using madcap antics, verve, and flights of fancy from one of the most successful epics in entertainment history.
