DescriptionProfessor James Kakalios shows that comic-book heroes and villains get their physics right more often that you would think. Learn what the physics of forces and motion can reveal about Superman's strength, and what would happen if the Atom could travel on an electron through a phone line. Exploring everything from thermo-dynamics to sold state physics, and relating the physics in comic books to such real-world applications as microwave ovens and drivers' air bags, "The Physics of Superheroes" shows how comic books have often been ahead of science in explaining cutting-edge physics, and will make both comic-book fans and physicists exclaim, 'Excelsior!'
