Avoiding mathematical and scientific equations in favor of more modern language that is clear and with a good dose of humor, this book explains many different scientific concepts with the help of science fiction films and superhero comic books. This fresh, new take on science addresses the validity and possibility of certain sci-fi and comic book tropes, such as asteroid impacts, invisibility, and teleportation, from a truly scientific perspective. What technical difficulties would an extraterrestrial being traveling to Earth be faced with? Could people survive by eating processed cadavers? and Could superheroes avoid the unrelenting rules of physics? are some of the questions that will both entertain and inform readers.
