BOOMLAB -  Sharing the Science of Boomerangs - Boomarology


People who study boomerang science are called 'Boomarologists'.


All boomerang throwers who take more than a casual interest are Boomarologists because they study and marvel at the flight.  When you start making boomerangs you wonder why the different shapes, profiles, materials and cross sections produce different flights.  When you make a systematic study of this you are a Boomarologist already.  This page has information on some of the people who have taken the study of that science a little further.  If I missed you out – let me know and I’ll be happy to share your knowledge through this site.

John Cross - Author of 'Performance Boomerangs'.  This is a practical 'how to' guide for making shaping and throwing boomerangs.  You can buy it on line here >>>> 


Hugh Hunt - Cambridge University Reader in Engineering Dynamics and Vibration, Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge and general boffin.  Hugh explains a lot about boomerangs on his pages and lots of good general science too. His science is real and fun - not too mathematical
