Let’s talk lasers with scientist Maria Viitaniemi! These concentrated beams have been staples of science fiction and fact for many years. Some cut through metal. Others can transfer information from extreme distances. And in Real Genius, they can even be used to make popcorn. Maria shines the light on lasers, then we watch one of the finest comedies from the 80s, Real Genius. Val Kilmer stars as Chris Knight, a brilliant young man who rules the school. But when he finds out his teacher has been using the students’ work to create a super-weapon, Chris and his genius friends have to find a way to outwit the man who taught them so much of what they know. You know it’s a good film because it has not one, but TWO 80’s montages set to song.
