This animated video shows how NASA's Cassini spacecraft at Saturn uses radio science to "peer" beneath the surface of the hazy moon Titan and study its mysterious lakes.
In this illustrated problem set, students use the mathematical constant pi to solve real-world science and engineering problems related to craters on Mars, a total solar eclipse, a daring orbit about Saturn, and the search for habitable worlds.
Students develop spreadsheet models that describe the relationship between the mass of a spacecraft, the force acting on the craft, and its acceleration.
