The History behind the Capsule
behind the capsule is the history of ideas in astronomy and
It took thousands
of people, thousands of years to get to the point where they
could send people to the Moon.
Here are some
of the ideas and observations made along the way.
One of the main
ideas that underpins everything needed to get the capsule
into space is that of gravity. And the other one? - how to
escape from gravity of course!
