Interstellar (2014)

 
Concept featured in clip: Wormholes
Location of clip: (DVD)


Summary of clip: This could be a great engage during a unit on the universe in a high school physical science classroom.

Connection of flickclip to the concept: Wormholes are theoretically possible, as proven by math. Though we haven’t discovered them in nature, this could be an interesting lead-in to discovering the “fabric of space”, distance between galaxies, and other crucial forces/concept that led to the development of the universe today.
Suggestions to teachers:

Questions after reviewing:
Do you think space-craft or the human body could withstand forces inside of a wormhole in order to use it for travel? Justify your answer.
Evaluating the evidence (would provide a couple articles/journals), do you think that wormholes could exist in nature? Why or why not?
If the crew in Interstellar required a wormhole to travel to their set destination, how does this change your thinking about the distances between galaxies on a universal scale?
