Explore the science behind our solar system, and how astronomers are exploring its boundaries in this video designed for KS3/4 physics lessons.
Physics teacher and solar astronomer Simon Foster explores our understanding of the universe from the top of a volcano at an observatory in the Canary Islands, showing how far scientists have developed our knowledge of the solar system.
Practical demonstrations back in the classroom provide teachers with useful ideas for their own lessons, such as the showing the phases of the moon and the explaining how axial tilt causes seasonal weather.
