Angel and Demons (2009)

 
Concept featured in clip: Matter/Components of the Atoms
Location of clip: (DVD)




Summary of clip: Could be used as an introduction into an overview of quantum physics and how CERN’s particle collider has introduced physicists to a whole new world of particles that are within an atom as well as antimatter.

Connection of flickclip to the concept: Could be a good Hollywood representation of real-world application of physics research.
Suggestions to teachers:

Questions after viewing:
Do you think that antimatter would make a viable source of renewable energy? Weigh the pros and cons and justify your answer.
Why is it important that the CERN hadron collider is studying particle collision?
Why is it important that scientists continue to ask questions and discover, even when the subjects they study are not always providing an innovation to society at that moment?
