The Science of Fairy Tales

Can a woman’s hair really support a man’s weight, as in the story of Rapunzel? Can a carpet ever fly? And how would you steal someone’s voice, like Ursula does in The Little Mermaid? It turns out that some of that magical stuff is actually possible -except for that “happily ever after” part, of course.
