Hollywood Science Gone Bad: A Special Screening of "The Core" with Professor Jeroen Tromp
TIME AND LOCATION:
Friday Nov. 30 at 8 P.M., East Pyne 010
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.
Open to all Princeton students, staff, and faculty.
Popcorn and drinks will be served.
This event is the second in a series of “Hollywood Science Gone Bad” movie screenings hosted by the Princeton Undergraduate Geosciences Society (PUGS).
The series is dedicated to debunking the outrageous Earth science depicted in popular films and promoting awareness of the field of Geosciences.
Cosponsored by the USG Projects Board and the Department of Geosciences.
