Sometimes the real-life and on-screen versions of a scientific field can be so far apart that the only thing they share is a name. (Please note, Hollywood: The job of an archeologist is to preserve ruins, not destroy them.) Today, we want to know which science continually gets the worst hatchet job on screen.
Tell us your pick for the most misrepresented science and explain just how the real and on-screen versions differ, particularly if the scientific field going through the wringer happens to be your own. Be sure to share the most egregious on-screen examples in the comments, too!
