NASA in Aberdeen: Inspiring the Next Generation Spoken Word

NASA in Aberdeen: Inspiring the Next Generation

Multi-million dollar Hollywood production, Gravity, is one of the most successful sci-fi movies of all time. But just how much of the film’s plot was true to life?

Come along to The Truth Behind Gravity at Robert Gordon’s College, to hear from NASA Astronaut, Rick Hieb, and NASA Scientist, Dr. Sue Lederer, who will give their first-hand knowledge of gravity and how it affects us.
Dissecting the movies effects, Rick and Dr. Lederer will explore the sensationalized segments which bend the laws of physics, and show videos taken in the actual International Space Station and in space with play-by-play explanations of what it’s really like to ‘float in space’.
