Exploration

First, go to WaterWorks to learn about how water fountains work and how you could create one of your own.

Now go to Gravity in Orbit to learn why an orbiting spacecraft doesn't fall to earth. You should do the "Is There Gravity in Orbit?" interactive on the page. When you're done with this activity, you'll be asked to write a paragraph explaining the animation that is shown on the page.
