Big Screen Science: Dish, The

Celebrate space and stars with a fun event for the whole family! Revisit classic sci-fi films on the big screen, followed by fascinating presentation and discussion on how space is depicted in cinema with Astrophysicist Dr Rachael Livermore.

"Science fiction can sometimes make eerily accurate predictions for the future, but often its conceits break the laws of physics - usually to aid the plot, but occasionally for no discernible reason at all. Separating the plausible from the bizarre offers both a fun chance to talk about science, and a glimpse of which elements of science fiction may one day become science fact." - Dr. Livermore

It is a date that will be remembered for all time. July 20 1969 – the day man first set foot upon the moon. That one shining moment was witnessed by a television audience of six hundred million people across the globe. Remarkably, those immortal images came via a “dish” in rural Australia. It may have been one small step for man, but for a handful of Aussie scientists, it was a giant leap. And one that almost didn’t happen... From the creators of the beloved Australian cinema classic The Castle and TV's Utopia, THE DISH stars Sam Neill, Patrick Warburton, Roy Billing, Kevin Harrington and Tom Long in the incredible true story of Australia’s part in the Apollo 11 moon mission.
