Overview

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.

 

Evitando el uso de ecuaciones matemáticas y científicas a favor de lenguaje más moderno que es claro y sencillo y con una buena dosis de humor, este libro explica muchos conceptos científicos con la ayuda de películas de ciencia ficción y cómics de superhéroes. Este acercamiento innovador a la ciencia aborda la validez y posibilidad de ciertos tropos de la ciencia ficción y de los cómics, tales como los impactos de asteroides, la invisibilidad y el teletransporte, desde una perspectiva realmente científica. ¿Con qué dificultades técnicas se encontraría un extraterrestre que viajase hasta la Tierra? ¿Podría el humano subsistir alimentándose de cadáveres procesados? y ¿Podrían los superhéroes eludir las implacables leyes de la física? son algunas de las preguntas que entretendrán e informarán al lector.
