Hollywood Physics
Patrik Norqvist, Senior lecturer in Physics

In the world of films, especially in action movies, everything seems to be possible. Car jumps, bullets get crooks to fly and weapons roar in space when you see the laser light pass by. But how does it work in the real world? In his humorous show at Bildmuseet, Patrik Norqvist compares Hollywood's homemade Physics with the Physics of the real world. Film clippings will be mixed with his own filmed material and pedagogical explanations. (Language: Swedish)

Patrik Norqvist is a Senior Lecturer at Umeå University and doing his research in the field of Space physics. He has received several pedagogical prizes for his entertaining way to raise interest for Physics. Except for the Hollywood Physics shows, he is also an author of popular science books and has participated in TV shows like, among others, Boston Tea party, Breaking News, Plus, Smartare än en femteklassare och Hela kändis-Sverige bakar.
