Superpowered Science FTW!

The Superpowered Science page is ready for the world!

Lucky, lucky me, I have an in with the premier superpowers research association in the world -- which happens to be right here in Washington, DC. How convenient.

But that's not how I have the in. I have it because Irene Ballagh, Neuronaut-in-Chief at the Hamiltonian Society, is an old friend, and she's written up an explanation of how awakened superpowers work -- or as near as we can get with the information we have, anyhow. The Hamiltonian Neuronautics Society is of course controversial. In some quarters they're laughed at -- superpowers? No such thing! In some they're hated -- they're not supposed to prove this stuff, let alone write it down.  And in most, well, people just pretend they don't exist. But still Ballagh and her tireless staff of researchers and scientists carry on. Lucky for us.

Check out what she has to say about electric and thermomanipulators on the Superpowered Science page, if you're wondering how they do what they do. Believe it or not, right?

(Seriously though, thanks very much to Irene Ballagh, who is an honest-to-god neuroscientist, for creating the awakened version of superhero science just for Equilibrium -- and everything that's to follow. Neuroscientists: they make the best writers. They are also badasses. Facts are awesome things.)

Here's hoping, Louise. Oh I really, really hope!
