Join astronomers from the Royal Observatory Greenwich as they separate science-fact from science-fiction in the films you know and love, and a few films you might not have heard of...

For LGBT history month, join us for a talk from Royal Observatory astronomer Dr Emily Drabek-Maunder on the science of the 1999 film The Matrix, written adn directed by the Wachowski sisters.

From using humans as batteries to building civilisations underground to keep warm in the apocalypse, this film is filled with fascinating science-fiction ideas that can even be applied to our exploration of the Solar System!

No travel needed, just an internet connection to join us online via Zoom. Invite details will be included in an email after you have booked your place.

While having seen it is not a prerequisite to enjoy the talk, feel free to watch it beforehand before you come along!
