Secrets of Superhero Science

I'm Barry Fitzgerald - Research Scientist at Delft University of Technology, Speaker, Scientific Communicator and Author.

In February 2016, I self-published my popular science book the "Secrets of Superhero Science". In the book,  I talk about the real science and current scientific research that you need to know in order to create the superpowers of the superheroes. Iron Man suits, invisibility cloaks and web slingers may be part of your future.

Santa has developed these technologies with the elf-scientists at his Arctic workshops. You’ll learn the science behind Santa’s flying reindeer, his cutting-edge weather prediction methods and the gadgets that allow Santa fly large distances in the blink of an eye! You’ll also read about the possible future that awaits Santa Claus as his Christmas Eve gift-bringing continues onwards into the 21st century.
