Lucky Luke--The Man Who Shoots Faster than His Shadow
Bokor, Nándor
Physics Education, v50 n6 p733-740 Nov 2015
The famous motto of the Lucky Luke comics series and its accompanying drawing are analyzed from a physicist's viewpoint. They provide useful pedagogical tools to discuss such aspects of relativity as causality, the equivalence principle, gravitational blue shift, and the tachyonic antitelephone.
