Crash Course Kids: The Great Escape - Episode 13.1

Do you know how many people have been to the moon? Only 12!

Part of the reason it’s so few is because of how difficult it is to escape Earth and get into space in the first place. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about gravity, escape velocity, and how gravity works between two objects.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We’re super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!
