The Known Universe by AMNH – YouTube
“The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.

How do animals move? :: ScienceBlog :: Supporting 21st Century Science GCSE
“In this activity you should use your knowledge of forces to explain how animals move!
Remember that it is normally the reaction force on the body of an animal which gives rise to the resultant force. To obtain a reaction force, an action force must be applied in the opposite direction. There must be a resultant force on the body to change the velocity of the body.

NASA – Do-It-Yourself Podcast: Newton’s Laws
“In 1687, Newton published a book with his explanation of how an object, or matter, moves. The book, entitled “Principia,” is important to science because in it he explained three laws of motion and the Universal Law of Gravity. Newton’s Laws of Motion describe the relationships between motion, matter and force. “
