The crew of the merchant vessel Nostromo answers a distress call on an abandoned moon. There are no life forms on the surface to speak of, except for a field of eggs and a giant structure...An «old dark house» mystery updated for the jittery nerves and wounded psyche of the late 1970s, Ridley Scott's ALIEN is a masterpiece that must be experienced on the big screen.

Parasites everywhere, androids with bad intentions, and so much acid! Alien is bursting with science from beginning to terrifying end. Following the film, join scientists Kishore Hari and Jeffrey Silverman as they dissect the science of this sci-fi classic.

About Science Vs Cinema
Science Vs Cinema is a new monthly series exploring the awesome science behind your favorite movies. We'll explore what's right, what's wrong, and why the scientist always seems to be the first one to die in so many films. Get ready for a way-too-deep dive into the science — from the physics of spaceflight to the biology of vampires and everything in between. No movie is off limits — cult faves, Hollywood blockbusters, hidden gems. Look for surprise guest scientists and embarrassing science-themed costumes. Hosted by science communicator Kishore Hari and astrophysicist Jeffrey Silverman. Making movies better with science!
