Can you become as fast as the flash?
In this video we apply the rules of science to the world of superheroes! We all love the flash and his super speed, but would it be possible in real life? And if so, how could we become as fast as the flash? Running is such an innate human movement that we rarely think about how it works. it all depends on muscle contraction. A Muscle Contraction Is Triggered When an Action Potential Travels Along the Nerves to the Muscles. Muscle contraction begins when the nervous system generates a signal. Watch this video as Alex is going to explain how your body is already working as fast as the flash! ➖➖➖➖➖➖ If you Love The Science Kids and want to help support it?
