Museum of Natural History “Reel Science” Series Appreciates the Gravity of the Situation

Wed 9/6 @ 7PM

While Bill Nye sues Disney for the proverbial “billions and billions” of dollars, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History has (we think) a less nasty way to popularize stuff about biology, zoology, astronomy and evolution: blockbuster movie screenings (not at the museum but at Cleveland Cinemas locations), with CMNH experts fact-checking Hollywood for scientific accuracy.

This month’s edu-tainment is Gravity — the 3D PG-13 two-character sciencefiction adventure from 2013 about two space-shuttle astronauts (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) stranded just within Earth orbit, fighting to survive after a disaster. Real-life astronomer Jason Davis will analyze the fine details following the screening at the Cedar Lee Theatre.

Admission is $8, with discounts for museum members (card must be presented — in science there must always be proof, remember).
