Summary If there is any area of science that can lay claim to being about how pretty much everything works, its physics. To prove our point the SCOPE team makes a splash at a water park, catches a few waves, stares at the stars and slams on the brakes. So join Dr Rob as he makes a few equal and opposite reactions and SCOPES out all the science behind physics. PHYSICS 101Physics is a massive area of science and Dr Rob will take you through some of the different areas like energy, forces, electricity, magnetism, light and space, to answer the question- what is physics?EXPERIMENT: BALLOON ROCKETWhere would physics be without Newton's third law of motion? It helps to get rockets and aeroplanes up in the air and Julia will show you how the same law applies when making a balloon rocket. PITCH DROPJulia talks to Professor John Mainstone about a physics experiment started in 1927 and that is still going today. WATER PARK PHYSICSIn summer everyone loves to go on water rides, but have you ever thought about all the physics involved in making these rides work. Well Andy Keir, a Physicist from Queensland University of Technology will fill you in on all you need to know about water park physics. BODY SURFINGFor most people the beach is all about the surf, sand and fun, and for Professor Neville De Mestre it's all that and more. Neville, a mathematician and body surfer has combined his two loves and will enlighten you on the physics of body surfing.CRASH PHYSICSThe Police Force play a major role in keeping our roads safe and that means investigating what happens when things go wrong. David Kuchenmeister from South Australian Police will show you how they use physics to investigate a crash scene. ASTROPHYSICSLisa Germany, an Astrophysicist from Swinburne University of Technology, gives you an insight into supernovae, or exploding stars, which created the elements that you, me, our houses, our cars and our planet are made from. So join Dr. Rob as he once again proves that the ordinary really does become extraordinary under the SCOPE!
