Don't Believe in Santa? One Scientist Offers Proof

Abstract:
New Yorkers doubting St. Nick's ability to deliver toys to the world's good girls and boys in just one night should start believing ó not in the magic, but in the science of Santa Claus.

With state of the art nanotechnology and an advanced understanding of aerodynamics, Santa Claus can travel the world in the blink of an eye, deliver gifts to the smallest of Manhattan apartments, and know whether New Yorkers have been good or bad this year.

"Santa is using technologies that we are not yet able to recreate in our own labs," explained Larry Silverberg, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering from North Carolina State University.

"He's not just a jolly elf that's overweight. He's a technologically savvy kind of guy."
