Hollywood Science Gone Bad: A Special Screening of "The Core" with Professor Jeroen Tromp

A special movie screening of the exhilarating Hollywood blockbuster The Core, a disaster film in which the Earth’s molten core has stopped rotating, causing the deterioration of the electromagnetic field and provoking the irradiation of the planet. A team of scientists must save humanity by drilling into the center of the Earth.

Professor Jeroen Tromp, the Blair Professor of Geology, will lead a discussion exposing both the good and bad science depicted in the movie, and will be available for a Q&A session afterwards.

Popcorn and drinks will be served.
