The Futurama of Physics

MasaMuneCyrus writes “I was surprised to notice an article about Futurama in my latest American Physical Society news. Titled, ‘Profiles in Versatility: The Futurama of Physics with David X. Cohen,’ Cohen talks a little bit about his life and his love for physics, and he goes on to describe how he regularly injects graduate-level physics jokes into the script of Futurama. He also talks a little bit about the upcoming season of Futurama: ‘in the 10th episode of the upcoming season, tentatively entitled “The Prisoner of Benda,” a theorem based on group theory was specifically written (and proven!) by staffer/PhD mathematician Ken Keeler to explain a plot twist.’”
