Special Topics: Physics

UNIVERSE
Explores almost inconceivable extremes of size and time from the vast islands of stars called galaxies to sub-atomic particles' from cosmic events that occurred billions of years in the past to micro-cosmic events in the present that endure for only a billionth of a second. [color, 27 minutes] $29.95 ST0073

Space Flight: Application of Orbital Mechanics
Describes the fundamental laws of physics, of how an object obtains orbit and stays there. Geared to the average student, this video is a primer for potential satellite users. Covers launch, insertion and on-orbit maintenance. [color, 36 minutes] $29.95 ST0023
button

Gyroscopes In Space
Illustrates the basic principles of gyroscopes by utilizing kinescope and other film footage from Skylab inflight science demonstrations. Scientist-Astronaut Dr. Owen K. Garriott discusses the experiment using both voice-over and on-camera narration. [color, 16 1/2 minutes] $29.95 ST0045

button
MAGNETISM IN SPACE
Scientist-Astronaut Dr. Owen K. Garriott reviews familiar magnetic effects and applications of magnets on Earth. He also shows how these effects are observable in space in new and different ways. The video concludes with important present and future applications of “Magnetism in Space”. [color, 20 minutes] $29.95 ST0024
button
Conservation Laws In Zero G
Scientist-Astronaut Dr. Owen K. Garriott discusses demonstrations of angular momentum both from Skylab and a classroom back on Earth. Some of the examples used are: astronauts spinning and rotating in space, an ice skater spinning, a cat dropped with zero angular momentum landing on its feet, and a model of the Explorer 1 satellite. [color, 18 minutes] $29.95 ST0046

button
Magnetic Effects In Space
Scientist-Astronaut Dr. Owen K. Garriott discusses a demonstration of the Earth’s magnetic field both from the Skylab and a classroom back on Earth. [color, 14 minutes] $29.95 ST0047

button
gravity and life
Dr. Richard Keefe, professor of anatomy, Case Western Reserve University, explains the role of gravity in the development of life. [color, 28 1/2 minutes] $29.95 ST0062
button

Opportunities In Zero Gravity
The Space Shuttle and Skylab are seen as the first opportunities to routinely utilize the new environment of zero gravity. This video surveys the characteristics of the weightless environment through the eyes of the crewmen that flew on board Skylab. Early problems of working in weightlessness and the subsequent solutions are seen. Mobility, mass transfer, handling of small parts, and other unique aspects of zero gravity are depicted. [color, 18 1/2 minutes] $29.95 ST0070
button

zero g and space suits
The space suit worn by Apollo astronauts is described. Weightlessness is also explained using animation. Astronauts are seen in zero g and during extravehicular activity. [color, 28 1/2 minutes] $29.95 ST0052
button

GAIA HYPOTHESIS
A new hypothesis for the origin of the universe is explored in this fascinating program. [color, 28 minutes] $29.95 ST0077
button

ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM: A SYMPHONY OF LIGHT
Astronauts show how the spectrum of light is important to the study of space, stars and our universe. [color, 19 minutes] $29.95 ST0080
button

NEWTON IN SPACE
With the aid of space shuttle astronauts and animated sequences, students learn about Newton's three laws of motion. [color, 12 1/2 minutes] $29.95 ST0085
button

X-RAY SPECTROSCOPY: THE INSIDE STORY
Dr. Robert J. Liefeld, Professor of Physics, New Mexico State University, explains how x-rays are generated and how an x-ray spectrometer disperses them into a spectrum. He shows how specially grown crystals are made and used in a two-crystal vacuum x-ray spectrometer to diffuse an x-ray beam, to isolate a single wavelength, and to scan a spectrum and record its characteristics.
