E8 | STEAMboat | Flying buses, superhuman strength, invisible people: Where's the Physics?

Announcement STEAMboat initiative, HBCSE

About the Talk: We all watch and enjoy movies. People achieve far-fetched feats and cars jump from one place to another in an unrealistic fashion; and let us be honest- we all enjoy it and may also believe a part of it to be true! Some of these movie scenes cross the valid boundaries of science and show us many unbelievable events. In this session, we will try to break down some movie scenes, do some quick calculations and check whether they follow the rules of physics. So let’s together explore the world of movies and science, in this STEAMboat session!

The live session will be in Marathi. Versions in other languages will also be made available later on HBCSE YouTube channel in the following weeks. The links will be available on this website. https://steamboat.hbcse.tifr.res.in/
