Description:

Students will learn and identify with the cosmos and all that is out there.  They will learn to open and expand their minds to see that we have not solved the mystery of the cosmos.  Open and willing minds hold the key to future advancements in education concerning the universe.  Space and time from the very fabric of the cosmos. Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. Is space an entity? Why does time have a direction? Could the universe exist without space and time? Can we travel to the past? From Newton’s unchanging realm in which space and time are absolute, to Einstein’s fluid conception of spacetime, to quantum mechanics’ entangled arena where vastly distant objects can instantaneously coordinate their behavior, Greene takes us all, regardless of our scientific backgrounds, on an irresistible and revelatory journey to the new layers of reality that modern physics has discovered lying just beneath the surface of our everyday world.

Students will be expected to watch the youtube video and describe to me what they thought about the video.  Did it open your mind up to how vast the universe really is?  If so, give me an example of something you found interesting about the video.
