Interactive video lesson plan for: Grabbing space debris

Activity overview:

MIT researchers tested an algorithm for gauging the rotation of objects in zero gravity using only visual information, aboard the International Space Station (Learn more about the experiment: http://bit.ly/1osvusc)

Understanding how objects are spinning in space, where their centers of mass are, and how their mass is distributed is crucial to any space mission. From cleaning up debris to landing a demolition crew on a comet.

Here we see the tracked features and dense reconstructed model for three tests on the ISS where the object is spinning about the major, minor and intermediate axes respectively.
