Only 22 days ago, the world lost the great scientist, Stephen Hawking. At Elesapiens, we have closely followed his theories, his research, and his love of science
His greatest contributions consisted of his theorems of relativity, the origin of the universe, and black holes.
He was an astrophysicist, cosmologist, physical theorist, and a great scientific divulger. He received 12 honorary doctorates and was awarded the Order of the British Empire, the Prince of Austria’s Award for Concord, the Copley Medal, the Medal of Freedom, and the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award.
We share his great passion for outer space and his endless curiosity, so we have developed resources and our place in the universe. Additionally, we have made resources about the solar system, gravity, and other universal forces.
Here are a selection of those resources:
This is an infographic which relates the Universal Law of Gravitation to topics like our varying weight on each planet or the orbit of the International Space Station.
This video animation offers an introduction to the Solar System: the set of celestial bodies that move around the sun in outer space. The components of this system, the differences between systems, and the role gravity plays in its movement are all explained here.
This infographic takes you through a tour of the major milestones in exploration of our solar system, from the first probes that orbited the Earth to the research being done our Mars, through our first manned missions to the moon.
This activity involves construction and simulation that helps students understand the scale of the planets and their distance from the sun.
