Mulder and Scully from the X Files

X-Files: The Truth is Out There

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

Do you still want to believe? Join Mulder, Scully and friends for a celebration of the spookiest sci-fi show in history: the X-Files. As part of this celebration, there will be big-screen showings of classic X-Files episodes, with real life alien hunters sharing latest scientific discoveries that could get us one step closer to discovering if the truth is out there. FBI-issue fancy dress (or tin hats) are a must.

Speakers include:

Professor Michael Garrett, Sir Bernard Lovell Chair in Astrophysics and Director of Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, University of Manchester

Professor Peter Knight, Professor of American Studies, University of Manchester and author of Conspiracy Culture: From the Kennedy Assassination to “The X Files”
