My mother paid for ice skating lessons for me when I was younger, but when I stepped onto that ice with famous physicist and figure skater Michio Kaku, I couldn’t help but feel like a real amateur. Know your physics and perfect a double axel! The fact that I struggled to avoid skating into a much more proficient child skater didn’t help shake this feeling. But in true Michio Kaku fashion, he was able to get me on my feet (and off my butt) by explaining the actual physics that make it possible for a human being to gracefully skate (and stop) on a frictionless surface. Check out the video on Michio’s homepage to see how I did, and then you can re-watch all your favorite Michio videos while you’re at it.
