WVII Covers Science in Film Talk

WVII (Channel 7) reported on a panel discussion about how science is represented on film at the Penobscot Theatre in Bangor. Neil Comins, a University of Maine professor of physics and astronomy, and Marcella Sorg, a medical and forensic anthropologist at UMaine, were part of the panel that touched on the silver-screen portrayals of topics from physics to zombies. The talk, titled “Good, Bad and Ugly: Science in Film,” was a preview event for the first Maine Science Festival to be held in March 2015.
