LONDON: Holy crash-landing, Batman! The crime-fighting caped crusader could fly, but if he did, he would smash into the ground and probably die, a group of British physics students have calculated.
Dashing the dreams of comic fans across the world, four students at the University of Leicester said that while Batman could glide using his cape as he does in the 2005 film Batman Begins, his landing would kill him.
The superhero is back in cinemas this month in The Dark Knight Rises and they suggested Batman should go shopping before trying a similar attempt to become airborne.
“If Batman wanted to survive the flight, he would definitely need a bigger cape,” said David Marshall, 22, one of the students in the final year of their four-year Master of Physics degree. – Reuters
