Reel Physics vs. Real Physics

the-rockI’m not much of a scientist, but I do really enjoy science. And there have been plenty of times when I’ve seen something in a film that made me say, “Uh-uh. That would never and could never happen.”

Enter Reel Physics, a web show that takes crazy scenes from movies and runs them through all the equations to see if what you see is possible. So far, I’ve been pretty surprised that a lot of what I’ve seen is absolutely possible.

So, if you like movies and math, check it out.

And yes, Michael Bay is completely content to break the laws of the universe to make Nic Cage look awesome (but, when does Nic Cage not look awesome?).
