Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite
Edward F. Redish
a science-fiction story my friend is writing, a group of aliens
have come to take over the planet. They
are kindly aliens, however, and don't want to kill us all. They
only want all the people in the world to be together somewhere
where they can transform us all into Borg penguins. They
plan to create tall 100 story apartment buildings to keep us in
while they are preparing the transformation process. Every
family would get a small, but comfortable apartment. Could they
fit them all on the College Park campus? In the state of Maryland?
Estimate how much space they would need for all of these buildings
and compare it to some area you know.
