About this event

Over the last two decades, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown to become one of the greatest playgrounds for the moviegoer's imagination. Through their films, Marvel shows us glimpses of the present and future of scientific exploration, especially in the wild frontier of space. At this free event, you’ll hear about many of the different ways that Marvel movies use (and break) the rules of science to take us into their universe.


Once Assembled, our four professional astrophysicists will walk-through the science behind some of your favorite Marvel movies including: - The habitability of planet systems - The formation of stars - Galaxies and their stellar populations - The physics of massive interstellar objects such as neutron stars and supermassive black holes
