James T. Kirk – Physics Thought Experimental Monkey

Since I started watching and reviewing Season Three of Star Trek (The Original Series) I’ve found myself becoming openly hostile and irritated at the thought of having to get through the remaining fifteen or so episodes.  But I feel that I need to do something to improve the situation.  After all I started the exercise because I remember enjoying the show when I was a kid and maybe somehow, I could regain that youthful exuberance toward this venerable enterprise.

So, I looked around to see something on the web that would provide a fun Star Trek experience and what I found was “Does Kirk die when he goes through the transporter?” by a German lady physicist named Sabine Hossenfelder.  She has a soothing voice and pleasant appearance and I thought this just the type of woman scientist that James T. Kirk would be putting the moves on minutes into his introduction to her.  How perfect that she would be theorizing on the death of Kirk in her video.  I’ve always thought that the concept of the transporter was the most absurd of the various technical absurdities in the Star Trek storyline.  If it also kills Kirk, all the better.

Anyway, take a look and tell me what you think.
