Live Chat: The Science of Superman

See below for the chat box. Join us each Thursday at 3 p.m. EDT for a live conversation with leading scientists and expert reporters.
Today's Topic

From Star Trek Into Darkness to the upcoming Elysium, the multiplexes are packed with sci-fi this summer—and where there’s science fiction, there’s usually a healthy dose of science fact. What does science have to say about the Man of Steel’s superstrength? Could any known virus cause World War Z’s zombie plague? And how close are we to warp speed anyway?

Join us on Thursday, 20 June, from 3 to 4 p.m. EDT for a Google Hangout discussion of what this summer’s Hollywood blockbusters get right and wrong about science.
