AstroAlert: Scientists fact check natural disasters in movies

Hi everyone,
[vcex_spacing size=”30px”]
A new video from Vanity Fair takes a creative and entertaining approach to communicating science with the public. They invited three environmental scientists to watch and critique (good and bad) the science portrayed in such disaster flicks as San Andreas, Twister, The Core, Interstellar, Sharknado, Pompeii, and more. How scientifically accurate are they?

Although not exactly Mystery Science Theater 3000 laughs, it’s a clever way to interest and inform people about science. Enjoy!
