SCIENCE PROJECT! Learn about the Forces of Earth through DNN News!
Good morning, I am Bryan Burke live from New York and I'm here to discuss the impact certain forces have on us and our daily lives.

To start us off, let's go to Frank Wilis, who is live from Space
Hi, I am Frank Wilis, from DNN News, here to explain gravity. I'm currently in space away from Earth's gravitational pull! I feel like I'm floating!
Gravity is a force that keeps all things from floating off. It is constantly pulling downwards towards the center of Earth.
I'm Cathy from DNN and this is my son Jacob. He is currently running around the house and wearing socks with grips.
Oh no! I almost fell! It's a good thing I'm wearing my special socks
Forces are a push or pull exerted on different objects.
Gravity is what keeps Earth revolving around the Sun and what keeps the Moon revolving around Earth. It's the force that brings all objects down.
Must...take...purse... but why isn't it opening?...ouch I fell, is that a magnet holding the purse together?
The grips on Jacob's socks create friction which prevents him from slipping. The friction is created when the socks slide against the floor.
That's it for today! Thank you all for tuning into DNN News for our special segment on forces.
Elasticity helps objects go farther when pulled back (like the slingshot from Angry Birds).
My name is Jaakko Iisalo and I am the creator of Angry Birds. The force of elasticity is used in my game with the slingshot. The slingshot shoots the birds to hit the green pigs.
Magnets use Magnetism which is created from Earth's rotation. Magnets are strong because magnetic forces are constantly pushing on each other.
I can't believe I'm trying to get robbed...it's a good thing my purse is secured with a magnet.
The forces gravity, friction, elasticity and Magnetism allow life on Earth to be easy and fun.
