The Gravity Series
Magnetically held in a sturdy portfolio printed to reveal the science behind gravity, each of the three books tells a tale of this compelling universal force in relationships of falling, climbing and orbiting. So finely tuned is gravity, that if its quantity had been infinitesimally altered, our universe could not have emerged and life would not exist. As one of the four fundamental forces of the universe, gravity is strong enough to hold galaxies together as they reel around the cosmos, and precise enough to give weight to each individual held on earth. Like love, gravity is mysteriously irresistible; invisible yet essential.
A Star Close Enough
In orbits, two mutually attracted bodies revolve around a joint center of mass, located in the space between.
All There Is
This book is about trust, finding your own center of gravity and moving your own weight.
How To Fall
Gravity guides our velocity into the unknown.
