        Mysteries of Deep Space | Activity: A Classical & Relativistic Trip to a Black Hole

        In this lesson, students will explore Newton's Laws of Motion, and calculate various measurements related to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. It is the year 2070 and you and your crew of interstellar astronauts are prepared to take the first journey of humans beyond Pluto! Your mission is to test, firsthand, the predictions of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. Specifically, your goal is a black hole some 10,000 light-years away. Because of its distance, the trip will be a multigenerational one. Your offspring, and theirs, and so on, will be trained in your task to complete the mission.
