The scientists

Sometimes Sam Bombonico is joined by eminent physics professors of the past and present. They often appear out of thin air as holograms (almost like ghosts), at the professor’s request – thanks to his HH equipment (“HoloHelp”) – or suddenly without warning (because of a breakdown in the HH which is still a prototype with many problems), to help him explain difficult concepts or theorems that they have invented. Unfortunately their explanations are often rather hare-brained and abstruse which means Sam has to “translate” the points in a way that is comprehensible for the children. Other times the scientists simply appear to remind Sam of appointments or important meetings that he has inevitably forgotten.
Some possible scientists (caricatures of themselves) are: Isaac Newton, Galileo Galilei, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Richard Feynman, Enrico Fermi and Max Planck.

Along the way, during the various episodes, many other characters will appear: scientists, ordinary people from around Motiontown, students from the school and, who knows, some aliens from a parallel universe to explain to us “their“ physics.
