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?
Share your summary of the physics behind Voyager 1 in the Student Showcase and build your resume!
