Science and a Movie: Mad Max Fury Road
June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
Join us for another Science and a Movie at Central Cinema! In the world of Mad Max, a global oil shortage kicked off nuclear war, resulting in widespread drought and massive radiation fallout. This irradiated desert wasteland affects reproduction and rates of cancer induction – both of which are seen in the film. But – paradoxically – the same reasons that radiation can be dangerous make it a useful tool for treating cancer. Come hear medical physicist Dr. Jessica Fagerstrom in a pre-film discussion on nuclear fallout, War Boys, and the heroic and villainous sides of radiation.
