Science on Tap to examine the physics portrayed in movies such as ‘Apollo 13’

When Austin Peay State University’s Science on Tap returns to Strawberry Alley Ale Works on May 3, APSU professors will continue their examination of how Hollywood blockbuster movies portray science.

This time, Dr. B. Alexander King III will examine how basic physics principles are depicted in the movies, including how Hollywood sometimes gets the science right, such as in the 1995 film “Apollo 13.”

“I’m going to talk about a variety of movies, including ‘Apollo 13,’ and how the basic physics is either right or wrong,” said King, chair of the Department of Physics, Engineering and Astronomy.

King’s presentation – “The Science of Space in the Movies” – will start at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3, in Upstairs at Strawberry Alley.
