Meteorites and the Movies - Dr Zana Williams,  Geologist
Level, 2 Theatre, 6.50pm - 7.20pm & 8.20pm - 8.50pm

Hollywood has been predicting the end of the world by meteorite impact from as early as the 1940s. Anything from the earth destroying big impact portrayed in the movies such as Meteor, Deep Impact and Armageddon, the invasion of alien species travelling on a meteorite as seen in Evolution, Monolith Monsters and The Blob through to the rise zombies and killer plants in Night of the Comet and The Day of the Triffids has been played out on the silver screen. But what is the real science behind the movies? Should we be finding a friend for the end of the world?

Explore these themes seen in many movies and use events from the Earth’s history to discuss the likelihood of these end of the world events actually taking place. Let’s talk death of the dinosaurs, the modern day meteorite impact rate and even the origin of life on earth all linked to Hollywood’s epic meteorite movies.
