In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to collect samples from an asteroid, fly a helicopter on Mars for the first time, find efficient ways to talk with distant spacecraft, and study the forces behind Earth's beautiful auroras.

Students develop a model to represent the collision of two black holes, the gravitational waves that result and the waves' propagation through spacetime.
