Helping Marvel Superheroes to Breathe

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

Marvel comics superheroes Ant-Man and the Wasp possess the ability to temporarily shrink down to the size of insects, while retaining the mass and strength of their normal human bodies. But a new study suggests that, when bug-sized, Ant-Man and the Wasp would face serious challenges, including oxygen deprivation. Those challenges, along with their solution-microfluidic technologies, will be described at the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics 71st Annual Meeting, Nov. 18-20.
