The Science Of Fantastic Four

Science? In Fantastic Four? Yeah, right!

That’s what you’d think because Fantastic Four is a superhero fantasy. It’s meant to be pure imaginative fun.

Well, it is. But often, the fantastical ideas are inspired by real science. It’s cool that 20th Century Fox has released a fun series of featurettes, each focusing on a particular concept in the movie. Up top, for example, is the “teleportation.”

They have teamed up with the awesome Michio Kaku who explains how theoretical science forms the basis of these ideas. Basically comparing science fiction to science fact. Maybe it’s a preemptive strike by the studios which is understandable given how films like Interstellar has been ripped to shreds on the net.

Three others here, including “alternate dimensions,” “wormholes,” and “invisibility.”

Aren’t these fantastic? Very cool and crafty, methinks.

S.G. Basu is an aspiring potentate of a galaxy or two. She plots and plans with wondrous machines, cybernetic robots, time travelers and telekinetic adventurers, some of whom escape into the pages of her books. Once upon a previous life on planet Earth, S.G. Basu trained to be an engineer, and her interest in science and her love of engineering shows up time and again in her books.
