Earth and Space

This short film follows Brendan Owens, as he hosts a workshop at the Royal Observatory with a group of schoolchildren to teach them about Earth and Space. He puts right common misconceptions about the moon, and gives his top tips on teaching Earth and Space. Using his rotating model, he brings the orbit of the...

Autonomous navigation

Dr. Mark Woods explains how the rover technologies must be partly autonomous, since the signals from Earth to Mars take too long for every command to be send from Earth.  The technologies developed for space, also have applications on Earth.

This video is part of a series of ten which look at the one of the...

Kinetic theory: box triboelectric

Kinetic theory: box triboelectric

This video shows ESA astronaut, Tim Peake, attempting to demonstrate the collisions of particles in a gas - kinetic theory.  You can observe the balls being attracted to the side of the box through triboelectric charging. Teachers’ notes can be found here.
