Dr Alan Duffy, Research Fellow at Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing (CAS)

In Aliens we learnt that in space no-one can hear you scream, yet Star Wars showed us space battles that were excitingly noisy. Which movie is right? And does it even matter if it's wrong?

Join Swinburne astronomer and astrophysicist Dr Alan Duffy as he explores the science behind classic Hollywood blockbusters - those that got it right and those that didn't.

The Science of Science Fiction is running during Swinburne Open Day 2016.
