Intrinsic Field Trip

University of Minnesota physics professor Jim Kakalios teaches a class called “Everything I Know About Science I Learned from Comic Books.” He also wrote “The Physics of Superheroes” which Discover Magazine called the best science book of 2005.

In the following video clip, Jim discusses the super powers of one Dr. Manhattan nee Jon Osterman: If the Doc were real, how could modern physics explain how the blue guy’s powers would work?

For more from Jim, take a look at our exclusive interview with the professor back in July 2008 at last year's San Diego Comic-Con.
