Escape Velocity from Every Planet in the Solar System: Resource for Kids

What is escape velocity?

In physics, escape velocity is the minimum speed needed for an object to "break free" from the gravitational attraction of a massive body (that is, to escape a massive body without ever falling back).
In other words, an object has to overcome the gravitational pull of a massive body for being free to escape into space.
For example, a rocket going into space needs to reach the escape velocity in order to make it off Earth and get into space.
A larger planet has more mass and requires a much greater escape velocity than a smaller planet with less mass.

More particularly, escape velocity is the speed at which the sum of an object's kinetic energy and its gravitational potential energy is equal to zero.

So, if the kinetic energy of an object, launched from the Earth, were equal in magnitude to the potential energy, then in the absence of friction resistance it could escape from the Earth.

A rocket moving out of a gravity well does not actually need to attain escape velocity to escape, but could achieve the same result (escape) at any speed with a suitable mode of propulsion and sufficient propellant to provide the accelerating force on the object to escape. Escape velocity is only required to send a ballistic object on a trajectory that will allow the object to escape the gravity well of the mass M.

In closing, for example the escape velocity from Earth is about 11.2 km/s or 40,270 km/h (25,020 mph).

This topic isn't so simple, therefore an animation like this below can help its understanding, in particular by the kids.

Airbus channels H.R. Giger for world's first 3D-printed motorcycle
Airbus is typically associated with making airplanes, but a subsidiary called APWorks just announced the creation of the world's first 3D-printed motorcycle that can actually be used as a daily rider. Aptly named the Light Rider, given that it weighs in at a mere 35 kg (77 lb), the electric-powered two-wheeler appears to be what would happen if H.R. Geiger designed a motorcycle.

Love science? Then you'll really love Google's new app, Science Journal. Using the sensors already present in your Android device, you can run experiments.

Android will Soon Support the Raspberry Pi 3 - About 5 weeks ago, Google created a new device tree in their AOSP repository for the Raspberry Pi 3. It’s still empty after all this time, but it did suggest that the company was working on adding Android support for the tiny ARM computer. The official Raspberry Pi 3 Twitter page has now confirmed our suspicions, so we’ll see that repo filled with code when Google is ready.
