Scientists have finally answered one of life’s – whether Batman can really fly. Researchers from Leicester University in the U.K. tests on the type of cape Batman wears he flies around Gotham City watching for and criminals. They concluded that he would be able to pretty well, but would crash at high speed and die once he tried to . The researchers say this is because the of his cape is too short to allow him to land . Researcher and superhero addict David Marshall said: "If Batman wanted to the flight, he would definitely need a bigger cape. Or if he preferred to keep his intact he could opt for…jets to keep himself aloft."

The research is called 'Trajectory of a Falling Batman'. The research team tested the physics the cape in the 2005 movie “Batman Begins”. The wingspan of the cape is 4.7 metres, which is around that needed for a human to land . The research team said that if Batman from a building about 150 metres high, he would be able to glide for about 350 metres. The problem would when he attempted to land. The would be the equivalent of being hit by a car driving at 80kph. The team concluded that: "Clearly gliding using a batcape is not a safe to travel, unless a to rapidly slow down is used such as a parachute."
