In today’s fact we learn about Gravity!
Mr. Toes teaches us about spacecraft Cassini and how it uses flybys of planets as a slingshot to increase its speed.
The Fact a Day:
Did you know…When the spacecraft Cassini does a flyby around Saturn’s moon, Titan, it speeds up by 2,625 feet per second (800 meters a second)?
That also equals 1,789 MPH or 2880 KPH. It has reached 76,000 MPH at top speed. (122,000 KPH).
