Bigger, Faster, Stronger, Stranger: The Science of Superheroes

Bigger, Faster, Stronger, Stranger: The Science of Superheroes
Ever fantasized about being a superhero? Wondered whether it’s really possible to build a suit like Iron Man’s, or what you’d have to do to become a real-life Batman? Do you think gamma radiation could really create an Incredible Hulk? Join host Adam Weiner for an evening that will explore the "real" physics behind many of your favorite superheroes by connecting the actual science to the superhero fantasy. His interactive presentation will analyze how the fundamental laws of physics are used, misused and manipulated by our favorite superheroes. Taking scenes from "Superman" (1978), "Spider-Man" (2002), "The Hulk" (2003), "Spider-Man 3" (2007), "Hancock" (2008), "Iron Man" (2008), "The Dark Knight" (2008), "X-Men: First Class" (2011) and "Thor" (2011), the program will demonstrate how the fictional world of Hollywood movies is also an effective and fascinating springboard into investigating science.
