The Secrets of Superhero Science

Posted May 23, 2016

​I wanna fly like Superman...

​Imagine a world where everybody had a superpower. Some people would be able to become invisible, just like Sue Storm, thanks to invisibility cloaks, others might own impenetrability suits which are as strong as the skin of Colossus, while some people might even fly to work with their very own Iron Man suit. Such a world sounds like a daydream. However nothing could be further from the truth. In reality this superpower world could be your future world.


At Campus Party, Barry Fitzgerald will take you on a journey through the real science and the current scientific research that could create some of the superhero superpowers in the future. Barry will speak about the “Secrets of Superhero Science” at Campus Party on the Science Stage on Friday 27th May from 13.00 – 14.00. During his talk, he will delve into the genetic secrets of the X-Men, reveal the science behind creating an invisibility cloak and discuss the prospect of building Spider-Man’s web slingers. You’ll also hear about accountability issues and governmental laws that must be introduced when superpowers enter our daily lives.
