Family Matters: The Transformation Chamber
00:00:00 - 00:02:15

Steve wants to use Carl's den as a laboratory to work on his revolutionary experiments. When Carl rejects the idea, Steve captures his interest by explaining that they can make money from his invention. Steve then shows off his latest experiment: a Transformation Chamber that can resize objects.

Public Discussion Questions

  1. Assuming this Chamber is real, what would need to happen on the molecular level for it to function?
  2. Why do you think we don't have a device like the Chamber today?
  3. Is Steve's description of how the Chamber functions a valid scientific argument? Why or why not?
