Welcome former astronaut Dr. George D. Nelson, emeritus Director of Science Mathematics, and Technology Education and Full Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Western Washington University. Presenting: “Gravity Always Wins!”
Gravity is by far the weakest and least understood of the four known forces of nature, but it is responsible for the large-scale structure of the universe; the formation, evolution and fate of galaxies, stars, and planets and your beer staying in the glass until you drink it. I’ll talk a little about the nature of gravity and share some stories about living in “zero-gravity” where the rules of motion are a little different.
Following this presenation we gresent the film “Gravity”.
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission. Her commander is veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), helming his last flight before retirement.
