SoS – Monty Python

Tonight is the Science on Screen presentation of MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL which features a pairing of rapid fire scientific presentations along with a very silly film.

Presenting Our Round Table of Scholars:

  • Dr. Amy Dressel discusses of the sustainability of life after repeated “flesh wounds”
  • Dr. Scott Gende to waxes poetic on the ontogeny of frugivores laden with tropical nuts
  • Not-Quite-A-Dr. Terrance Schwarz allocutes on druidic buoyancy and other water-type situations
  • Sir Chris Mertl holds court on proper types (one that looks nice and is not too expensive) of shrubbery
  • Lord Ben Collman expatiates on the necessary torque, velocity, and pitch required for proper bovine projecting

Also there will be coconut shells for banging and flying birds. And sing-alongs. And you are encouraged to quote your nerdy little head off!!
PLEASE NOTE: We will have thee other screenings of this title this coming weekend, but they will be at regular ticket prices. Schedule forthcoming in Thursday’s email!

Ryan North is a New York Times bestselling cartoonist and author of How to Invent Everything which poses the question: What would you do if a time machine hurled you thousands of years into the past. . . and then broke? How would you survive? Could you improve on humanity’s original timeline? And how hard would it be to domesticate a giant wombat?

As part of the 2019 Science on Screen series, Ryan North discusses his guide for the stranded time traveler. Learn to invent all of our modern conveniences from their original scientific principles.

It’s the science of inventing everything!
