Summary
Although gravity is the weakest of the fundamental forces, it is nevertheless the most universal-and the easiest to demonstrate! This program demystifies the properties and behavior of gravity with the help of real-world illustrations and animated graphics. Topics include the four fundamental forces or interactions; Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation; the physics involved in microgravity environments; the role played by gravity in the trajectories of space vehicles and satellites, including geostationary satellites; gravitational field strength and other planets; and the inverse square nature of the law of gravitation.

Summary
Why are things attracted to one another? How long does it take the moon Titan to complete one orbit around Saturn? And what is the weight of a pizza on the Sun? Using the help of a Sun Surface Pizza delivery person, this program answers these and other burning questions regarding the Law of Universal Gravitation and all three of Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion.
