MULTIMEDIA LESSON #001
Lesson Title: The Science of Orbits
Content: Four related videos showing how an "orbit" is a state of motion in which a body is continuous falling toward the Earth, but never getting any closer to the ground. That's a highly unintuitive concept, but we explain it with a series of animations starting with basic 2D kinematics. We begin with Galileo's apocryphal experiment in Pisa, Italy.
