The Expanse: Acceleration
00:00:04 - 00:01:21
  • Science → Physics → Acceleration
  • Science → Newton's Laws of Motion → First Law

The crew on the ship prepare to perform a "flip and burn" manuever. This manuever puts an intense toll on the crew, as they need to strap in and inject themselves with some fluids during it. This clip illustrates that the effects of gravity and acceleration should be indistinguishable.

Public Discussion Questions

  1. Why would the people on the ship need special drugs during this maneuver?
  2. What is the point of a "flip and burn" maneuver?
