Fun science for kids that's all about health, space, and Earth!
So we know about GRAVITY, but what exactly is MICROGRAVITY? Kids make their best guesses, but the answer might be in outer space!

Meet Janet. She'll be your tourguide through this crazy universe of ours! Don't worry...there's no spacesuit required.
Why aren't we floating right now? Gravity, of course! But it's not that simple...
Gravity works in strange ways, and Janet begins to get to the bottom of it all.
It's a fair question, right? Would we be walking on ceilings? Or would our entire universe change?
Henry Cavendish was the first scientist to test gravity in the laboratory. Thanks to the "Cavendish Experiment," we know how much Earth weighs!
Two of the key elements of physics, an object's weight and mass determine how it's affected by gravity. Now THAT'S heavy!
The apple never falls far from the tree...and that's how Isaac Newton discovered gravity!
How does gravity behave when we get down to the real nitty gritty? More science for kids coming up!
Wait, the Earth revolves around the SUN? Yes, but before Galileo, no one believed that!
So we know about GRAVITY, but what exactly is MICROGRAVITY? Kids make their best guesses, but the answer might be in outer space!
What effect does microgravity have on astronauts orbiting earth? Let's take a look inside some amazing scientific research!
