Thursday, June 24, 2010 • 6:30 p.m. Doors open • 7 p.m. Lecture
Van Vleck Auditorium, Tate Laboratory of Physics
116 Church St. S.E., Minneapolis
Presented by James Kakalios, physics professor, University of Minnesota
Kakalios addresses topics from Isaac Newton to the transistor, but there's not an inclined plane or pulley in sight. Instead, all the examples come from superhero comic books, and as much as possible, those cases where the superheroes get their physics right!
The lecture, sponsored by the Institute of Technology Alumni Society (soon to be called the College of Science and Engineering Alumni Society), is free and open to the public, but those planning to attend should register.
