In this activity, students learn how light and energy are spread throughout space. The rate of change can be expressed mathematically, demonstrating why spacecraft like NASA’s Juno need so many solar panels.

In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to detect frost in lunar craters, determine the density of Mars' liquid core, calculate the powered output from a dam, and find out how far a spacecraft travels as it returns data to Earth.
