Jim Kakalios: The Science of "Watchmen"

I saw the "Watchmen" movie this weekend and had a good time. I ran into this clip while browsing and found it interesting.

Jim Kaklios is a physics professor for the University of Minnesota and was the technical consultant for the recent "Watchmen" movie. He makes sure that there is substance, reason to many of the supernatural effects that you see in the movie, especially the ones surrounding the character Dr. Manhattan. In essence, he adds information to shots that make them appear real.

If you've seen the movie, you should check this out. If you've seen it and would like to leave a comment, let us know what you think.

Fire it up!
