- Good morning, Dean Higgins.

- But Dean, it's $50,000 this year.

- Really? $50,000?

Morning, Dean Higgins.

Young Druffle seems to have come up

with something very promising.

He's one of our honor students. What's

he doing here with a crowd like this?

Good morning, Dean.

There's another beaut, that Schuylar.

Right this way, sir.

Well, Druffle...

I thought we might give Dean Higgins

a progress report on your experiment.

Certainly. Good morning.


Actually, my work with bumble bees

is based on a very simple theory.

See, when you consider

the mass of the body of the bee,

the drag quotient far outmeasures

the foil efficiency and the lift field.

- Ergo, it's fairly safe to say...

- Thank you, Druffle.

Morning, Dean.

Howdy ho, Dean.

- Tell them not to touch me.

- Please.

I know what Tinkertoys are when

I see them, but what is this monstrosity?

- What is this?

- It's an invention of my own.

I can imagine.

People have been trying to figure out

the problem of invisibility.

- I didn't know that was a problem.

- Things have changed.

A lot has happened

since Einstein split the atom.

This looks like one of them.

It looks complicated, but actually

it's very simple once you understand it.

I'm not sure I care to understand it.

First of all, you have to read

Bersokoff's book on quantum mechanics.

- I do. And who was Bersokoff?

- You don't know him?

That's funny, he was a very famous

18th century Russian scientist.

He was the man who developed the theory,

"If we could prevent reflection..."

Let me show you.

If we could prevent reflection by...

bending light waves around objects

with a non-reflectable liquid,

we could make those objects invisible.

That was his theory?

Making objects invisible?
