The final Harry Potter movie is out today. I’ll go see it later today (I’ll be the weird guy crying in the fourth row). Now I know Harry Potter isn’t science fiction, but it turns out there is some science related to it. Here’s a few links.
- The Harry Potter Effect: The Science Behind Why We Like Magical Things from Psychology Today.
- Muggle Science: Harry Potter Frequently Used in Medical Research from Rajiv Narayan’s Blog.
- My Favorite Harry Potter Moment: Azkaban and the Space-Time Continuum from It’s Okay to be Smart.
And here are some links that have absolutely nothing to do with Harry Potter.
- A Less Shoking Way to Reset a Broken Heart from Science Now.
- Near Perfect Particle Measurement Achieved from Live Science.
- The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction to be Reborn as a Website from The Website at the End of the Universe.
Lastly, there is a book called The Science of Harry Potter. I’ve never read it and can’t say if it’s worth reading, but I know I was very confused when I first heard about it.
