This animation demonstrates Sir Isaac Newton's three laws of motion that laid the foundation for classical mechanics.
These great scientists had a tremendous impact on the advancement in physics.
This animation demonstrates the process of star development for average and massive stars.
This animation explains the most important characteristics of waves through sound waves.
Waves play an extremely important role in many areas of our lives.
The Hubble Space Telescope orbits outside the distorting influence of Earth´s atmosphere.
The three important laws describing planetary motion were formulated by Johannes Kepler.
The Kepler space telescope was launched by NASA to discover Earth-like planets orbiting other stars
The diameter of our galaxy is about 100,000 light years; it contains more than 100 billion stars, one of which is our Sun.
Observatories are often built at high elevations to minimise the effects of atmospheric turbulence
This animation introduces the studies of astronomers and physicists whose works fundamentally changed our view of the universe.
It is a well-known phenomenon that the sound of an approaching sound source is higher than that of a receding one.
This animation presents some interesting facts in the field of astronomy.
