Astrophysicist Dr Roberto Trotta will lead us through the ultimate voyage around the science (and the fiction!) behind some of your favourite sci-fi movies. From cloaking devices to alien civilizations, from warp drives to transporters, find out how sci-fi writers have boldly gone where no scientist has gone before – yet.
Dr Roberto Trotta is an acclaimed science communicator and theoretical cosmologist at Imperial College, London, where he studies the properties and nature of dark matter and dark energy. His award-winning first book for the public, The Edge of the Sky: All you need to know about the All-There-Is, endeavours to explain the universe using only the most common 1,000 words in the English language.
