Press Release: Talking Science on Thursday - Gravity and Astrodynamics
This week's Talking Science will be about one of the fundamental forces of nature: gravity. In particular, we are going to talk about how scientists and engineers use rockets with and against gravity to send spacecraft all over the Solar System. So we'll be talking about such arcane things as geostationary orbits, Hohmann Transfers and Lagrange Points. Along the way we'll learn about folks like Kepler, Newton and Einstein. There might be a teeny bit of math too.
