Science in the Cinema - National Science Week

Join the free screening of the 1966 sci-fi classic Fantastic Voyage. A miniaturized crew attempt to heal their injured colleague by traveling through his body. But in 2018, do advances in science and technology mean that science fiction is becoming closer to reality?

The screening of the film will be followed by an expert Q&A session and an interactive demonstration of virtual reality equipment allowing you travel inside a cell.

The expert panel will include University of New South Wales Associate Professor John McGhee. As Director of the 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab, John’s work explores the visualisation of complex scientific and biomedical data using 3D animation and virtual reality technology.
