Science and Technology of Avengers Assemble

  1. So a quick collection of articles which look at the science and tech in the year’s biggest blockbuster (so far).

    First up – a piece on context. This Nice NPR post on the self consistency of the Avenger universe.
  2. Ok, so there’s some constraint built into the universe – just how far did Whedon ‘change the laws of physics’? MSNBC offered this.

  4. PC Mag and Discover  took a closer look at the tech used by Iron Man and his pals
