Mission 1: Newton in Space

Produced with the input of experts and teachers, this 17-minute video from ESA illustrates how simple experiments, in space and on Earth, can be used to investigate Newton's three laws of motion. The video also examines the difference between mass and weight. The video uses demonstrations from two astronauts on the International Space Station and from classes in three different countries in Europe. Many of the simple experiments performed in the schools can easily be repeated in the classroom. Filmed during the Cervantes Mission (2003), the video has a duration of 16:52 minutes and can be downloaded as a high-resolution movie (200 MB).
