Modern Technology Misconceptions Mythbusted

For our creative project, we wish to expose and/or test (when possible) common misconceptions about modern technologies, such as: cell phones, power lines, nuclear power, wind power, solar energy, lasers, microwaves, laptop computers, mp3 players, etc. As an additional part of our project, we will conduct video interviews with other Vassar students to see what ideas they have about these myths. An example of one of the questions we hope to answer could be: Do microwaves leak unsafe levels of electromagnetic radiation?
