Von Werra - German Fighter Pilot
Investigating common grounds as well as contradictions, filmmaker Werner Schweizer connects in his cinematic survey Franz von Werra's biography and the one of the actor Hardy Krueger.
Legacy of the World War One Aviators
Legacy of the World War One Aviators celebrates a little-known chapter of aviation history, telling the stories of the group of legendary World War One pilots who came together to establish and operate Australia's first commercial airline in the remote reaches of Western Australia. The 35 minute documentary focuses on…
Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime - Understanding Gravity Course
Gravity rules the universe. Without it, everything would dissolve into a gas of randomly interacting atoms. Yet gravity is one of the least understood forces in nature. Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime introduces you to key ideas in gravity research over the past 400 years. It's an awe-inspiring journey…
The Strangest Force
Begin your exploration of gravity with Isaac Newton and the famous story of the apple. Why was it such a breakthrough to connect a falling apple with the faraway moon? Review the essential characteristics of gravity and learn why small asteroids and large planets have such different shapes.
Free Fall and Inertia
Review three great discoveries by the "grandfather" of gravity research, Galileo Galilei. His most famous experiment may never have happened, but his principle of inertia, law of free fall, and principle of relativity are the basis for everything that comes later in the science of gravity--including key breakthroughs by Einstein.
Revolution in the Heavens
Drawing on ideas and observations of Nicolaus Copernicus and Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler achieved a great insight about gravity by discovering three laws of planetary motion, relating to the mathematics of orbits. The cause of planetary motion, he determined, must lie in the sun.
Universal Gravitation
See how Newton was able to finish Kepler's revolution by formulating the law of universal gravitation, which says that every object exerts an attractive force on every other object. Also explore Newton's related discovery of the three laws of motion, which underlie the science of mechanics.
