This is the ACTIVITY training video for Exploring the Universe: Objects in Motion. The Content training video for this activity can be seen here: vimeo.com/245835205
This activity encourages participants to explore the complex but predictable ways objects in the universe interact with each other. Stars, planets, moons, and other objects in space orbit around each other because of gravity, and NASA scientists can use what we already know about the laws of physics to make new discoveries and predictions. Participants in this activity use "orbiting" clay balls to make simple, functioning models of interacting objects in space.
