You can’t talk about forces and motion without talking about Isaac Newton. His three Laws of Motion were published more than 300 years ago, and yet their basic concepts—inertia, acceleration, momentum, and mass—are still the standard for how we discuss forces and motion today. The laws may have been refined over the years (most famously by Einstein) but they still reign as incontrovertible scientific laws. We couldn’t send the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit without Newton.
While there may not be much NEW about Newton’s Laws, there is still plenty to say about how they affect the world around us. Read on for some interesting news reports related to forces and motion. Let us know if you find an article you’d like us to post!
