First, when Lois Lane is falling (at, what, 120 mph? I think that is about the speed something with minimal wind resistance gains from the top to bottom of a tall building), Superman flies up at what looks to be about 90 mph. They meet with a combined force of 210 mph, and she hits his arms (skin likened to steel) and does not splat all over the hero? Also, how does Superman propel himself and control himself in sustained flight? No wings, no alerons, no elevator. He must be a rocket. I am left to think that the nozzle must be… no, I don’t even want to think about that. Also, not only do Sci-fi space explosions send sound through a vacuum at the speed of light, as mentioned in the website, but spacecraft behave like airplanes! I am nitpicking, but think of the grace and beauty that could be conveyed with a space chase that was in tune with the laws of physics: only sound would be heard from the perspective of the cockpit, the rest would be glorious, tension producing silence or the music. Beautiful. Reply Kate January 7, 2009 - 9:39 am I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment.
