SILBERSALZ spricht Event

Just how much science is really found in science fiction? A myth-busting session with Dr. Whatson.

Whether Star Wars, Back to the Future or Marvels Avengers. All of these movies sweep us away into futuristic scenarios – or into the past of a far-removed galaxy. But does what we see there really exist? A not quite seriously intended glance at our favourite science fiction films and their depiction of scientific elements. Together with scientists, the science-YouTuber Cedric Engels is analysing how close to reality flying cars, laser weapons and genetic modifications really are.
