In this episode: Dr. Rob Carter and Joseph Darnell
In honor of the 50th Earth Day, Joe and Rob talk about…the earth! That is, the rock we call planet earth. They discuss some amazing experiments, done in the 1700s, that told us the mass of the earth and that calculated the gravitational constant. This is a big deal for us today, because there would be no space travel without these foundational experiments.
