Relativity...Einstein...maybe you have heard these words before...maybe in some confusing scientific contexts... Well tonight we get to hear from Richard about relativity in the movies - a pint, a bit of science, and a new look at some cool movie clips? What's not to love?!

Relativity in science-fiction movies: who gets it right?

Richard Taillet (Research Professor)
Quoting Einstein's relativity in a science-fiction movie makes a good scientific-(-ish) alibi for directors. In some of these movies though, relativity is actually introduced in a more interesting way, giving something to learn or understand about physics to the viewers. In this talk, a physicist will present and comment movie clips from these rare jewels.
