Games like the "Assassin's Creed" series show us exciting locations, historical places, bloody fights and daring stunts. It is well known that Ubisoft brings a lot of reality into the parts in the form of buildings and figures, but how much fiction is there, for example, in the jumps of the assassins? The Science vs. Fiction from MDR looked at it and found great things.
Science vs. Fiction: who is behind it?
We play games on a regular basis and basically just take things as they come without giving us much thought. The German team from Science vs. fiction however, put the matter to the test and clarify questions that you have probably never asked yourself, but still somehow want to know. “Why does Leo die when the water temperature is 0 °, but Rose does not die when the air temperature is the same? Does radioactivity lead to superpowers? Can you really bring another car to a stop with a turtle shell? ”And as in this example:“ Would Eivor actually survive jumping into the hay? ”.
Together with experts and the community, Jack Pop and the team behind Science vs. Fiction based on live experiments and physical calculations precisely answer these questions.
