In episode #303 of Science Goes to the Movies, Dr. Vinod Menon joins the show to talk about holograms as they appear in the films of the Iron Man, Star Wars and Star Trek franchises. Star Trek character Jaylah's method of creating holograms is compared to how they're made in real life and Vinod offers a prediction on how long it will be until the technology exists to "beam" ourselves like Scotty into other physical locations (not as long as you think!).
