Perplexities of Doctor Who

For our project, we plan to explore some of the concepts that arise in Doctor Who.  One concept that we will discuss is the planet orbiting a black hole in the episode “The Impossible Planet”.  We would like to discuss what forces would enable this orbiting to occur.

We will also investigate the quantum mechanical concepts involved in the series’ alternate realities, including a discussion of the possibility of jumping between these realities.

Moreover, we will analyze the feasibility of laser and electrical weapons as they are portrayed on the show multiple times, especially in the Dalek race.

We will present this project as a paper/extended blog post with embedded video clips demonstrating the concepts in question.
