In their first ever live event, Newstalk's Futureproof team will take you to the movies. The weekly science show has decided to explore the real science behind some of the most iconic science fiction movies, kicking off with Andrew Niccol's Gattaca. There will be a screening of the movie accompanied by a Q&A with geneticist Kevin Mitchell in what promises to be an entertaining and enlightening event.
