The film ‘Moon’ talks about Sam Bell who experiences a personal crisis nearing the end of a three-year solitary period working on the moon together with his computer GERTY. With no direct communication between the station and Earth, and only GERTY to tend to his daily needs he begins to hallucinate. After getting into an accident he discovers something that will make him attempt to get back to Earth alone, while questioning his own sanity.
CineXjenza aims to spark discussion on science topics raised in films. Following the screening of Moon, guest speakers Dr Jackson Levi Said and Dr Edward Duca from the University of Malta will initiate a discussion on astrophysics and human cloning. Duca is a geneticist while Said a cosmologist.
This event will be held on the 14th of December at 7:00 pm at Spazju Kreattiv (Cinema Room).
CineXjenza is supported by the STEAM and Erasmus+. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, Spazju Kreattiv and S-Cubed.
"Malta must act now to bring science within everyone’s reach, raise the next generation of problem solvers, support Maltese research at every level, and invest in RD&I for a high-value sustainable economy."
The Malta Chamber of Scientists is concerned that science is not being given its due importance in Malta. This document outlines an inclusive vision for a cohesive science policy that will impact positively across the Maltese economy and will help ensure its continued prosperity. By identifying key issues and proposing solutions, this document provides a blueprint for the future of science in Malta.
