Title: Science Study Break - Spider-Man
Author: Buskirk, Ruth
Description: Spider expert (and Spidey fan) Dr. Ruth Buskirk kept the SRO crowd of spider enthusiasts enthralled. The program presented scenes from the movies Spider-Man I and Spider-Man II, as well as panels from the original Stan Lee-Steve Ditko comic. Audience members besieged Dr. Buskirk with questions about real spider habits, spider silk strength and production, and web-building versus the depictions in the films.About Science Study Break: Pop culture and the academy collide as Science Study Break features researchers from The University of Texas at Austin discussing the science reality in books, television and film. Past presentations have examined bioterrorism and its treatment in the Fox thriller “24,” artificial intelligence gone wild in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” the comic realities of Spider-Man and epidemiological models for the proliferation of zombies. Science Study Break takes place twice each semester.
