Physicists study how matter and energy interact.
VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of a physicist is like.
Launched in 1977, Voyager 1 is almost 14 billion miles away from earth, travelling through interstellar space at over 38,000 miles per hour – that is FAST! To give a comparison, it would take Voyager 1 a little over 30 minutes to travel the entire circumference of the earth. Wow! Learn more about Voyager 1 from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Then try to figure out the physics behind Voyager 1’s speed. How is it travelling so fast? How long will it continue to do so?
