Movies

Hollywood, Oscars, blockbusters! Movies and films can whisk you away to a realm of fantasy or gritty reality, but they are also pretty good as showing off a bit of science. Some of the earliest films have revelled in a little sci-fi, such as the 1902 film A Trip to the Moon or Fritz Lang's iconic 1927 movie Metropolis. How much is science fact, and how much is science fiction depends on the producers, but the impact of science on the Silver Screen can never be underestimated.
