Why do astronauts feel heavy after take-off? Why are rockets long and thin? How do spacecraft orbit Earth? Covering lots of different aspects of space exploration, including looking at how spacecraft such as rocket launchers, satellites and space stations work and more human questions such as why astronauts need to keep so physically fit and what kit they need in their spacesuits, Fly to Mars! takes a fun look at forces in space. While learning about forces you will find that you also find out the answers to many questions that you have asked yourself about astronauts and space, and more. This Feel the Force series shows how forces and motion work in the world around us, in a set of high-interest situations. Each book includes three simple activities or investigations for readers to try. Overlays over large photos, plus diagrams, show how forces are acting in a given situation. Topics covered in the series include basic pushes, pulls and friction, air resistance, gravity, mass, weight and springs.
Explore the world of heating and cooling with engaging text, real life examples and fun step-by-step experiments. This book brings the science of temperature to life, explaining the concepts then getting kids to be hands-on scientists!

What if Einstein played rugby? Surely Time Magazine's "Man of the Century" might offer useful tips and techniques to defeat the opposition? In this book, the world of physics joins forces with the world of rugby, to show you how to tackle harder, pass safer, run faster, and scrum better - all the things you need to do to win. Blending simple physics, the kind you meet in high school, with anecdotes and stories from the world of rugby, Trevor Lipscombe takes us on a journey from scrum ruck and maul, to the running and passing of the offence, the chasing and tackling of the defence, through the kicking of penalties, to dressing for success in scorching summer sevens or winning in the winter. Physics at last comes alive, for here we look at a scrum, say, show what Newton's laws have to say about it, and then use the physics to see how to improve rugby. For any rugby fan with a smattering of science, or any science buff who knows the rudiments of rugby, "The Physics of Rugby" should delight, entertain, and instruct.
This ultimate study guide with in-depth GCSE course coverage is all you need for exam success. Revise GCSE Physics has everything you need to achieve the GCSE grade you want. It is written by GCSE examiners to boost learning and focus revision. * Key facts highlight essential information * Progress check questions test your learning * Model GCSE answers show how examiners are looking for * Exam questions provide crucial exam practice
