The Physics of Space Battles

YouTube Link

PBS' It's OK to be Smart produced this interesting video informing us what is and isn't physically realistic or possible in the space battles we've watched in media presentations. These are not just opinion statements; they are all deductions made according to the laws of physics. It turns out pretty much everything we've seen on screen in terms of space battles are "as wrong as Jar Jar Binks." Hollywood creating unreaslistic expectations? Unbelievable! -Via Geeks are Sexy.

The show is entitled "It's OK to be Smart" yet they think "Star Wars" is in the future? Idiots.

Do they not remember the beginning of "Star Wars: A New Hope"? "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."
