Students of physics prove that Batman would kill himself if he tried to land using his cape

Students of physics prove that Batman would kill himself if he tried to land using his cape

A group of students published a paper called “The path of a falling Batman”, which are devoted to ruin the plans of those who wanted to become a superhero and fly like supercapa.

Students at the University of Leicester, England, analyzed the of the Batman film “Batman Begins” Christopher Nolan. The idea that the layer has “memory” and can be transformed into wings was considered possible, and the hero could actually fly without problem with them. If Batman jump off a building height of 152 meters using its 4.6-meter layer of fabric, could slip some 349 feet into the air to 109 km/h.

However, the problem would be at the landing. “We found that it could fly very well and pretty far,” said 22-year student, David Marshall, told the BBC. “You can go twice the distance of the fall, but once it gets there, is traveling at 80 km/h is is a bit faster to land safely … probably end up crushed.”

Research suggests some solutions to avoid this little problem and prevent death. One method would be to use the method of Gary Connery, the first subject that was launched from a helicopter using only a costume with wings , and survived the fall on a pile of cardboard boxes.

“If you would prefer to keep your style intact, could choose to use active propulsion, as jets to keep itself in the air,” said Marshall.
