How much does the internet weigh? What is the science behind Facebook? Are cats taking over the world?

Find the answers to these questions and more at Fact or Fiction 2.0: Web of Intrigue – a big screen experience where the World Wide Web collides with cutting-edge science.

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) in Sydney is bringing an esteemed panel of expert scientists to Townsville. With a hilarious host they will discuss the fact and fiction behind internet shopping, viral videos, the science of selfies and much more as they countdown the top 10 reasons people use the internet.
