The Kid Should See This

Make your own Fabric of the Cosmos demo

If you’ve seen physics teacher Dan Burns demonstrate how to use stretched spandex lycra to explain gravity and spacetime, then you’ll like this Fabric of the Cosmos how-to video from the 2012 SPS SOCK (Science Outreach Catalyst Kit). Meredith Woy and Melissa Hoffman build the model and then demonstrate orbits, tides, roche limits, and the creation of the solar system.
