There is a nonzero probability that Dr. Manhattan will not appear at the event.

Have you ever sat in a theater watching some movie, only to scoff at the screen and think “that’s not even scientifically possible! … I think.” Lucky you, because science is here to think so that you don’t have to!

Consider going to “Hollywood Science Meets Berkeley Lab [1],” an event billed as a free-admission double feature tomorrowWednesday, Feb. 3 and FridayThursday, Feb. 4.

The first part taking place on Thursday Wednesday goes from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Berkeley Rep. Topics include how scientists are depicted on the big screen [2] and how crazy surprise plot twisties sometimes rely on bastardized science.

The second part on Friday Thursday goes from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Goldman Theater, where the Berkeley Lab is launching a Science Café series. It will feature “an informal interview of SyFy TV’s Eureka co-creator, Jaime Paglia,” with an hour where the conversation will be “audience driven” (read: hour of Q&A).
