NASA Connect - Wired For Space



NASA Connect Video containing six segments as described below. NASA Connect segment exploring how algebra and arrays are used in NASA's activities. The segment also explains voltage, current, amp, and resistance. NASA Connect segment explaining how NASA is using electricity and magnetism to propell spacecraft into orbit. The segment also explains acceleration, mass, and force in an algebraic equation. NASA Connect segment involving students in an online activity that investigates a physics module on electricity and magnetism. The activity studies static charge, moving charge, voltage, resistance, and current. NASA Connect segment involving students in an activity called Make It Go which simulates NASA research. It uses an Electrodynamic Demonstration Unit to investigate electricity and magnetism. NASA Connect segment exploring how NASA is researching to design, build and test a new propulsion technology that uses magnetism, electricity, and tethers instead of rocket engines. NASA Connect segment explaining how NASA uses tethers to help propell spacecraft already in orbit. The segment also explores the NASA project called ProSEDS which is the first to experiment with a tether system.
