In this lesson, students learn that scientists and engineers are inquisitive. They read about scientist Carl Sagan in the book Star Stuff: Carl Sagan and the Mysteries of the Cosmos. After reading, students investigate the difference between mass and weight under Earth’s gravity and compare the weight of a mass on Earth to its weight under microgravity in space. This selection highlights the practice of obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information and it includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, and Index.
