The sci-fi thriller “Gravity” proved to be one of 2013’s biggest box office hits. The film’s story of two astronauts stranded in space piqued viewers’ interest, but was the science behind it accurate?

Darren Williams, professor of physics and astronomy at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, will discuss the popular myths surrounding gravity in “What is Gravity?”, the next Open House Night in Astronomy lecture at the college.
