Minecraft : Worlds of Curiosity
Based on the popular educational computer game Minecraft - and funded by What-If Hypotheticals In Minecraft - this immersive film encourages learners to explore the scientific consequences of alternative versions of Earth via “what if?” questions.
For example, 'What would it be like to live on an Earth with no Moon?'; or 'what if the Earth were twice its current size?'; or 'what if Earth was tilted on its side (like Uranus)?' - as well as emerging astronomy enquires like 'what would it take to terraform Mars?', or 'how do we mine asteroids?'
Join Mateo and Dr Alicia Woods as they explore how our lives would be different on these imaginary Earths. They consider hypothetical planets that could exist, and marvel at the very strange worlds astronomers have discovered beyond our Solar System.
