Rarely do you find resources that reach high school astronomy learners. Here is something at their level! The physics of flyby missions is explained via several examples. Landing, penetrating, and roving spacecraft are examined. Diagrams explain how to overcome gravity and enter the orbit of other planets. Even the types of energy, time, and costs required are visited! If you are teaching a high school astronomy course, this presentation is for you! Note: The presentation was created in 2003, so you may want to update some of the facts.
