Wingardium leviosa

on November 10, 2014

Lately my son and me are preoccupied with the story of Harry Potter, So I came across this wonderful spell which is used to elevate objects.

I couldn’t resist thinking about Gravity in this context. But also that science can’t explain real magic and that maybe people are so fascinated by magic because it defies the laws of science. 

Some milestones in the research of gravity:

Galileo started dropping things from Pisa tower to show that they will hit the ground at the same time. Surprisingly, a feather and a hammer will hit the ground at the same time because Gravity pulls them to ground with the same force.

In 1687 Isaac Newton Figured out the rules for how Gravity works.

….And last week the kids and us were rediscovering gravity during Science Kids, “How Gravity Works?” unit.

Here are some photos:

Keep experimenting with Gravity. It has everything that’s fun about science.
