The Irish Times on DART of Physics

Oct 24 2013

Fancy a bit of physics? Just take the Dart:

Over the next eight weeks, physics is catching the Dart. Passengers will get a dose of fun and accessible science during their journey thanks to Dart of Physics.

The initiative is putting various statements and challenges up on the Dart between now and Christmas.

These include explaining why passengers are all physically attracted to each other (this one is about gravitational forces rather than hormones, but you never know); how we are all made of stardust (even though we might not feel like it on the morning commute); and why the metal on the pole of the Dart feels colder than the fabric on the seat.
