Circular motion: two balls in circular track (air resistance)

This video from the International Space Station (ISS), shows two balls moving on a circular track, at first the video is sped up but then plays in real time.  The small ball catches up on the large ball because of the larger air resistance on the large ball.  The large ball eventually leaves the track because of...

Micro-organisms in Space

From Teachers TV, this Inside Science video describes an investigation into MELISSA, an artificial eco-system intended for long-duration space missions. This includes discussions with astronauts about the role of micro-organisms in space travel, such as a two year mission to Mars. MELISSA, or Micro-Ecological Life...

Mars Viking Mission

This video clip from NASA examines space exploration by the Viking missions to Mars and considers if life can exist on the Red Planet. After describing the components of the Viking orbiters and landers, the programme notes how scientific experiments performed on the surface of Mars revealed a lack of organic...

Living in Space

Produced by FootageVault, these videos from NASA illustrate the effects of apparent weightlessness as astronauts live and work in space. Clips include astronauts in Skylab, the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station. The clips can be used to illustrate forces, movement and how objects behave in...

Life in Our Solar System

Life in the extremesMicrobes can survive in the most hostile and inhospitable environments. Might similar places in our solar system be able to support them too?

Why are scientists interested in Mars?Why are scientists interested in Mars? Four scientists talk about why they are interested in the red...
