Product Description
This worksheet accompanies Cosmos A Spacetime Odyssey Episode 5: Hiding in the Light. Scroll down to read this episode's synopsis.

Cosmos A Spacetime Odyssey is an incredible educational short scientific documentary narrated by the amazing Neil Degrasse Tyson. You can find the show on various media platforms. It is perfect for an introduction to a topic, a great sub-plan, or a shake-things-up segue while you are moving between subtopics within a standard.

This 30-question 2-page EDITABLE word document and pdf include 25 short answer questions and 5 summarizing questions that you could do after the film or assign as homework. The questions are formatted short-answer style, however no answer is much longer than 1-3 words. The questions are spaced out so that they do not go too fast or too slow and encompass the entire film from start to finish.

Topics:
- Light Theory
- Absorption Spectrum
- Elements
- Atoms & Electrons
- Prisms
- Telescope Lenses
- Energy
- Gravity
- Dark Matter

I made this and am continuing to make more of these types of worksheets because the answers for most of existing worksheets for the Cosmos are online and I really detest when students just look up the answers instead of answering on their own. Also, the summarizing questions are individualized, so students cannot find an answer that is not their own. I regularly do online searches to ensure my answers do not end up online and take action if they do.

Cosmos Episode 5 Hiding in the Light Video Synopsis from Wikipedia:

This episode explores the wave theory of light as studied by humankind, noting that light has played an important role in scientific progress, with such early experiments from over 2000 years ago involving the camera obscura by the Chinese philosopher Mozi. Tyson describes the work of the 11th century Arabic scientist Ibn al-Haytham, considered to be one of the first to postulate on the nature of light and optics leading to the concept of the telescope, as well as one of the first researchers to use the scientific method.

Tyson proceeds to discuss the nature of light as discovered by humankind. Work by Isaac Newton using diffraction through prisms demonstrated that light was composed of the visible spectrum, while findings of William Herschel in the 19th century showed that light also consisted of infrared rays. Joseph von Fraunhofer would later come to discover that by magnifying the spectrum of visible light, gaps in the spectrum would be observed. These Fraunhofer lines would later be determined to be caused by the absorption of light by electrons in moving between atomic orbitals (in the show illustrated by the Bohr model) when it passed through atoms, with each atom having a characteristic signature due to the quantum nature of these orbitals. This since has led to the core of astronomical spectroscopy, allowing astronomers to make observations about the composition of stars, planets, and other stellar features through the spectral lines, as well as observing the motion and expansion of the universe, and the hypothesized existence of dark matter.
