The Physics of Super Heroes

When: Mon., March 2, 7:30 p.m. 2015

After teaching at the University of Minnesota for more than a decade, James Kakalios attracted media buzz in 2002 with his symposium “Everything I Needed to Know About Physics I Learned from Reading Comic Books.” In 2005, Kakalios boiled that concept down into a book, The Physics of Superheroes, and has since served as a science consultant for the films Watchmen (2009) and The Amazing Spider-Man (2012). Trinity brings the professor and author to town for a “funny, immersive talk discussing the chemical properties of Captain America’s shield and the material science of Spiderman’s webs.”
