Space is a vacuum.
What does that mean?
A vacuum is a space in which there is no matter or in which the pressure is so low that any particles in the space do not affect any processes being carried on there. It is a condition well below normal atmospheric pressure and is measured in units of pressure, which is the pascal.
Join us as Cool Science brings the vacuum of space to the Discovery Center in hands-on activities.
