In a one-page document, choose one primary topic and one “back-up” topic about which you would be interested in writing for the Research Project. Your topics should specifically address the fields of Physics and/or Astronomy. You might choose to explore the scientific accuracy of your favorite movie; the realism of claims man will reach Mars in a certain number of years; whether or not Apollo 11 actually landed on the moon; how much influence your zodiacal sign has on your daily life; or something completely different. Think creatively about what might be fictional that’s usually taken as fact, or might be factual yet is usually taken as fiction. Include for each topic the aspects you expect to explore, and whether you expect your subject matter to align more with fact or fiction.
