Free-Falling and "Weightlessness"

Images of astronauts cavorting in the weightless conditions they experience in orbit have led many to believe that there's no gravity in space. This interactive activity from the NOVA Web site explains how free-falling can result in a sense of weightlessness and, more importantly, how astronauts can free-fall for so long!

This resource can be found on the NOVA: “Stationed in the Stars" Web site.
