Special Event: It's Not Magic, It's Science! with Tommy Johns

Do you believe in magic?  Here are some interesting facts from The Magic Academy.com about this fun and mysterious hobby.

The word magic is derived from the Persian word "magus" which designated a priestly class. The Levitation Illusion was first performed in Greek dramas as early as 431 B.C.

David Copperfield is the first living magician to have a star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. The only other magician so honoured is Harry Houdini, who received a star after his death

The most dangerous trick in magic is the Bullet Catch. This effect, in which a marked bullet is fired at the performer who catches it between his teeth, has killed twelve magicians and wounded many more.
