Physics of Superheroes

Remember this post, where we read about a wonderful popular physics book that uses superheroes to introduce physics concepts? Well, it will be a while before we in India will get to see the book, Physics of Superheroes. What we can do in the meantime is to enjoy a few nuggets of the book available through articles and blog posts.

Boston Globe carried a lovely little interview of James Kakalios, the author of this book. You get short discussions of two ideas in comics books that are consistent with physics, and one that isn't. Quite enjoyable.
