The Science Museum; Facts

We all weight something on Earth as gravity pulls us to the ground. A spacecraft orbiting Earth is also being pulled down but without even reaching the ground: it’s high velocity-at least 28.000 km/h- balances the tug of Earth’s gravity. In this state of free fall the spacecraft and everything inside it is weightless.
