The Physics of Superheroes

In The Physics of Superheroes, Dr. Jim Kakalios asks if the comic book characters "could really do that?" to illustrate basic physics concepts. Here are some of Jim's public appearances discussing fragments of the book:

1) Death of Gwen Stacy (did Spiderman kill his girlfriend?)-



2) Electro & Magneto -



3) Superman's Blooper -



4) The Atom's Blooper -



Jim was an NPR Talk of the Nation guest last year and answered some questions from callers such as how fast the Flash needs to run to walk on water. A Slashdot post is also full of discussion and some additional links.

The Bentley GT collection owes its name from the original location of the Navitimer World factory. It was on this site that the 'return-to-zero' movement and the circular slide-rule Breitling Avenger were first designed and manufactured. To commemorate, these Superocean are little more ornate; hands and hour markers are embellished in gold.

If you are one of the fortunate who can go out and buy a Coach Outlet , my hat goes off to you. Do me a favor though, when you are carrying your beautiful Coach Hamptons , make sure you hold your head up high and smile because you are special and you deserve the best out of life. And Coach Madison doesn't get much better than Coach Legacy .


If you duplicate a THE COSBY SHOW and then lend to a friend or family member, this is a clear infraction of the fair use policy. By ignoring this policy and the copyright laws, you are putting yourself at risk of facing prosecution for the THE COSBY SHOW DVD Duplication. The best advice anyone can give you is to ensure that any THE COSBY SHOW DVD COLLECTION duplicates you create are in a safe and inaccessible place for any visitors you have.
