Natural Disasters in Movies

July 8, 2019

In this Science in Movies podcast Gil Kidron again welcomes Dr. Rutger Vos, an evolutionary biologist from Leiden University and Naturalis Biodiversity Center, both in The Netherlands - this time to talk about natural disasters on an unprecedented scale: asteroids, sudden climate change, and the eruption of a supervolcano. We break down the science, fact check it and review the way movies portrayed these disasters at the time they were made. The movies are Armageddon (1998), The Day After Tomorrow (2004) and Supervolcano (2005).
