aNewDomain — Did you know Batman physics is a studied science? I mean, there are no Departments of Batman, but the phenomenon of whether or not the caped crusader can do what he does has been put under the scrutinizing eyes of science — and, I’m sad to say, it comes up short.
There was that wildly enjoyed analysis of Batman tech back in 2008, conducted by Popular Science. But more recently British physicists wrote a paper, the conclusion of which states that Batman’s cape would kill him in a free fall, if he were to actually exist. Terrible news, I know.
But there are some fascinating calculations, like those in the below infographic. Check it out.
