La gravedad (The History Channel) - parte 2 de 5
La gravedad es la fuerza más poderosa y precisa del Universo, que todo lo domina y atraviesa. La fuerza de la gravedad nos mantiene unidos, sostiene a las estrellas en el cielo y aplasta la luz. La gravedad también mantiene a los planetas unidos y hace que orbiten alrededor de sus soles. Sin la gravedad, las estrellas, los cometas,
las lunas, las nebulosas e, incluso, la propia Tierra, no existirían.
