About Course

The mission seemed simple, throw an egg at a bedsheet and get it to break… sounds easy right? Think again! In this episode, Jason Latimer is challenged by NASA to use maximum force to break a fragile egg against a bedsheet. Using the laws of motion, Jason tests his throwing expertise, a slingshot and even a vacuum cannon to see which will break the egg. Watch to the end to find out if Jason’s mission was successful. If you want to play along, share your mission results using code name #NASAeggchallenge!

A special thank you to our friends at NASA and astronaut, Dr. Jessica Meir, for their help with this exciting challenge.
