Still image from The Universe: Gravity

Gravity is the most powerful and exacting force in the universe. It binds us together, its reach hangs stars in the sky and its grip crushes light. Without gravity, stars, comets, moons, nebulae, and even the Earth itself would not exist. Explore how science and humanity discovered, overcame, and utilized gravity. Learn what it takes to propel objects into the heavens, to ride a wave, or to ski down a slope. Take a front row seat as an astronaut subjects himself to the weightless wonders of the specially modified aircraft used to train astronauts known as the "Vomit Comet."
