Planet Impact: Home

by knann
In this interactive online activity, students investigate how the gravitational force of a large solar system body, such as Jupiter, can affect the path of a smaller body, such as a comet. They will launch a comet to learn how gravity can change its path. They also learn how changing the speed, the angle of approach, or the masses of large and small bodies affects the force of gravity on a comet. Students are challenged to use this knowledge to crash their own comet into Jupiter or make their comet fly past the planet without colliding with it

Build a Solar System

by knann (via)
Make a scale model of the Solar System and learn the REAL definition of "space." Enter how big you want to the sun to be in your model (in inches). Press calculate to see how to scale. Here is an example:If you build your solar system on a roll of toilet paper, you can make the Sun about .4 inches (10 mm) across and still fit the entire solar system on the roll. A standard roll of toilet paper has about 450 sheets that are about 4.375 inches long, hence the roll is about 164 feet long. You should check your toilet paper for length. Some are longer.
