Conspiracy theories – from the point of view of natural science
Conspiracy ideologies have a long tradition, and questioning such myths can be an educational and socially useful leisure activity.
Was the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, planned by the U.S. government? Are there chemicals in airplane contrails designed to manipulate humanity? Why do some people think the Earth is flat? Did the moon landings really happen, or were the videos we saw on TV in 1969 shot in a studio? And did a UFO really crash in Roswell in 1947, which has been kept in the restricted military area Area 51 since then?
Hubert Zitt will answer these and other questions in his lecture. Even if all these conspiracy theories are treated seriously from the view of the natural science, may be laughed at some places also gladly sometimes. And it goes without saying that scenes from science fiction films will also be shown in the lecture.
