“I doubt any great discoveries were made here but dropping in on any of these tricks sure felt like the boldest of guesses.” Juho Kilkki

NASA Explains Newton’s Laws of Motion:

  1. An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in motion remains in motion at constant speed and in a straight line unless acted on by an unbalanced force.
  2. The acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied.
  3. Whenever one object exerts a force on another object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite on the first.
