S276: Applying Science to 3 am Thoughts in Splash Spring 2020 (Apr. 18, 2020)
3 am thoughts walk the fine line between sanity and insanity. There's just enough residual coherence and rationality to express oneself and discuss concepts, but also enough of that all-too-familiar sleep-deprivation-induced madness to not immediately dismiss what one normally would. But in that state, all you can really do is theorize about those wild hypotheticals. One of the most important thing about science, however, is that it's universal. We tend to apply it to the real world, but really, you can use science to extrapolate forward from any hypothetical, regardless of how absurd. In this class, we'll apply scientific concepts to explore how to power a house on Mars, what would happen if the Niagara Falls were funneled through a straw, how to smash a hole through the Earth, and other similarly ludicrous ideas.
