The Physics of Super Heroes

James Kakalios
The Physics of Superheroes
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.”

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
