Sci-Tech Seminar: “The Science Behind Low Budget Hollywood Movies”


Asst. Prof. Denüz Yüret

Science Society Seminar

10th October 2006

 

Abstract: “Hollywood has fascinated the world for half a century with movies that depict spiders and gorillas that grow out of proportion or humans that shrink to the size of insects. In this talk we will discuss the science behind these creations (can a 50 foot woman really attack us?) and have fun with some old black-and-white movie trailers.”
