Summary
"What is gravity and how does it work? Could Earth ever stop spinning, and what would happen if it did? How do astronauts prepare for a life with zero gravity? This book introduces readers to scintillating science topics using easy-to-understand diagrams and fun fact boxes. This book explores important concepts such as weight and mass, how gravity affects our solar system, and zero gravity. Engaging, concise text explains each concept thoroughly, as bright visuals make science come alive. Hands-on experiments make this a dynamic and memorable learning experience"--Provided by the publisher
