"Shaken, Not Stirred!" James Bond in the Spotlight of Physics

February 01, 2021 | 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm (EST) Virtual Event

Can’t wait for the release of "No Time to Die," the new James Bond movie that is scheduled to come out in April 2021? Fasten your seatbelts and join us for UA Ruhr’s and DWIH NY's very own James Bond event!

Have you ever wondered about why James Bond prefers his vodka martini shaken rather than stirred? Could an AMC Hornet perform a spiral jump over the river as in "The Man with the Golden Gun?" And what about that hyper magnetic watch in "Live and Let Die?" Metin Tolan, Professor of Physics at TU Dortmund University and author of Shaken, Not Stirred! James Bond in the Spotlight of Physics, will provide thoroughly scientific explanations of what is really possible in the 007 films.

Catch the official YouTube premiere of the film and join us for a live discussion and Q&A with Metin Tolan for a deep dive into the scientific world of James Bond.


Premiere of Metin Tolan’s lecture on YouTube: January 29, 2021 (10:00 AM EST)
Tune in to the premiere on UA Ruhr’s YouTube channel to view the video and live chat Metin Tolan with your questions and reactions. The video will be available for on-demand viewing after the premiere.

LIVE virtual Q&A and Making-of Discussion with Metin Tolan: February 1, 2021 (6:00 PM EST)
Metin Tolan will provide context about the writing of his book and the making of the video. Join this interactive discussion to ask Metin Tolan questions about his work and favorite Bond films.

The Q&A will be held online on Webex Meetings and registration for the Q&A is required. Please RSVP by January 29, 2021 via the registration link. Registrants will receive an email with the access link for the discussion on February 1, 2021 before the event.
