Free Webcast – Mass vs. Weight: What’s the Big Difference Anyway? – January 13, 2011

The Aerospace Education Services Project, or AESP, is presenting a free webcast on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011, at 4:30 p.m. EST. During this hourlong webcast, Stennis Space Center aerospace education specialist Steve Culivan will discuss “mass” and “weight,” two terms that differ in meaning and that often are used incorrectly. This webcast will integrate Newton’s Laws of Motion and microgravity to explore these two terms and demonstrate their difference by focusing on education video filmed by astronauts on the International Space Station. NASA education resources and inquiry activities, developed from the space station video, will be used in this workshop. Come enjoy this “heavy duty” topic.
