🔹Big Sun, Little Moon: In space, distance makes BIG things look pretty small. Experiment with distance to see if you can make a BIG thing hide behind something tiny
🔹Orbiting Objects: Earth isn’t the only object in space with gravity! Explore how every object in space pulls on every other object in space
🔹Objects in Motion: Gravity of objects in space can tell scientists a lot about what we can and cannot see as scientists explore look for exoplanets
🔹Land the Apollo Lunar Module: Take the controls as you approach Tranquility Base aboard Eagle. Do you have what it takes to land?
