Fast On Foot

Hour 1:           Olympic sprinters like Usain Bolt can run 100 meters in less than 10 seconds. But what are the limits of human speed? As part of KERA’s Breakthroughs initiative, we’ll spend this hour with Dr. Peter Weyand, the director of SMU’s Locomotor Performance Laboratory.

He’s featured in Wednesday’s episode of the PBS series NOVA.

You can watch it on Friday at SMU’s Annette Caldwell Simmons Hall, with a panel talk to follow featuring Dr. Weyand and NOVA Producer Anna Lee Strachan. KERA’s Lauren Silverman will moderate. Screening’s at 5:30 p.m., discussion’s at 6. Here’s how to RSVP.
