Summary

Scientific discoveries can both fix and blur the lines between science fiction and science fact. From wormholes and warp speed to DNA splicing and human hybrids, we test the science behind the stories with the scepticism of Scully and the imagination of Mulder.

The ticket price includes a beverage on arrival. 

This is an 18+ event. This venue is licensed. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. The Queensland Museum Network supports the responsible consumption of alcohol at all events.
