Speakers: Prof. Martin Hendry, FRSE. University of Glasgow

All of our talks are free and open to anyone with an interest in science or technology.

Since 1977 generations of moviegoers have marvelled at the Star Wars universe. But how much real science is up there on the big screen? Could we ever travel to other planets, crossing the vast distances between star systems using shortcuts through  hyperspace? What kinds  of  alien worlds might exist in our Universe, and could they bear life forms that resemble the creatures found in Star Wars? Could a Jedi Knight really fight with a light sabre? Could the Death Star really blow up a planet? In this lecture astrophysicist and life-long Star Wars fan Professor Martin Hendry explores the science of Star Wars. Come along and feel the force!
