## How does a balloon powered car work?

The potential energy of the car is stored in the expanding elastic material of the balloon. As the balloon fills with air, it adds more potential or stored energy. As the air flows from the balloon, the energy changes to kinetic energy or the energy of motion. The moving Balloon-Powered Car is using kinetic energy.

## Why don’t we fly off the Earth?

Normally, humans aren’t thrown off the moving Earth because gravity is holding us down. However, because we are rotating with the Earth, a ‘centrifugal force’ pushes us outwards from the centre of the planet.

## Is anti gravity possible?

Many people seem to think NASA has secret training rooms in which gravity can be turned off. Aside from the long-running Anti Gravity column in Scientific American, however, there is no such thing as antigravity. Gravity is a force arising among any two masses in the universe.
