The Physics of Getting to Space
Future Virgin Galactic Astronaut Nigel Henbest talks about how he will have to overcome gravity in order to reach space on his sub-orbital spaceflight. When a rocket does not achieve orbital velocity, it falls back to Earth and re-enters the atmosphere within a few minutes after engine shutdown. Although Nigel will not quite manage escape velocity on this journey, he will leave the Earth’s atmosphere to experience weightlessness and witness an unforgettable view of the cosmos!
Nigel is an internationally acclaimed science populariser and author, specialising in astronomy and space.
