Important Scientific Research July 20, 2012

Posted by Garibaldy in Film, Science.

I missed this when it originally came out, but it seems that some physics students at Leicester University have been addressing the scientific questions that really matter. Not this God Particle nonsense, or even giving space to creationist rubbish in the Giant’s Causeway exhibition, but the question of whether Batman could really safely fly with his cape. The answer is that he could fly ok, but would seriously injure or kill himself on landing. A great disappointment I’m sure you’ll agree.

And it’s not just a scienttific theory either, it has been tested empirically.

Just over 100 years ago a guy jumped off the Eiffel Tower wearing a cape.

It didn’t end well for him.

Thanks for this LATC. “the unfortunate inventor” indeed.

I scheduled this post a few days ago, before the massacre at the Batman showing in Denver, otherwise I’d have delayed this.

I used to annoy my kids with stuff on time travel. It would take 100s of years to travel to the next star system or send a message. So a message arriving now (speed of light of course) would have to have been sent say 500 years ago.Energy needed for tme travel wuld be a multiple of our star.Maybe my figures a a bit out?
