This is a video question set to accompany the fourth episode of the PBS Series (also available on Amazon Prime Video)
Episode 5 tells the story of the development of the rocket, from ancient guano-powered fireworks to plasma rockets with magnetic confinement.
Experts Richard Garriott (Entrepreneur and Private Astronaut), Jim Al-Khalili (Physicist), Danielle George (Radio Frequency Engineer), Tiera Fletcher (Aerospace Engineer), and Franklin Chang Díaz (Astronaut) tell the story of how the rocket came to be, and where it seems to be heading next.
It involves the use of bat guano from Chinese caves to drive off evil spirits,
a modern-day celebratory rocket battle in Greece, a work of fiction by a famous astronomer, an imaginative tale about a trip to the moon, a visionary living in rural Russia, a breakthrough in dairy processing technology, a loophole in an international treaty, a repurposing of firefighting equipment, internal Soviet geopolitical subterfuge that stoked the Space Race, and plasma engines that could transport humanity to other worlds.
Episode 5 "breakthrough celebrities" include Robert Goddard, Werner Von Braun,
Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, Jules Verne, Ti Tian, Sergei Korolov, Karl Gustav, Thomas Harriot, and Johannes Kepler.
This set includes 35 questions that students can answer during a single, uninterrupted viewing of the episode.
