In this light-hearted public lecture Dr. Robert Jedicke examines whether Santa Claus violates the laws of Relativity on his Christmas Eve tour of the world's chimneys.

Robert Jedicke is a member of the Institute for Astronomy's Pan-STARRS team, scanning the sky for killer asteroids and other interesting lumps.

The lecture was delivered at the University of Hawaii, Manoa on December 8th 2008.
