Airplane Boarding Method by Astrophysicist Cuts Loading Time in Half

The Steffen Method

Back in 2008, Fermilab astrophysicist Jason Steffen took a break from matters of the universe to devise the Steffen Method, a clever optimization of the airline passenger boarding process. In this recent video demonstration of his method for This vs. That, 72 passengers were seated aboard a mock 757 fuselage in half the usual time. To date, no airlines have adopted the Steffen Method.
