Undergraduates Design and Build ‘Sandbox’ to Show How Gravity Works

2017_06_20-InteractiveSandbox-tschoon-019.jpg

The University of Iowa has a new sandbox—and it’s used to explain gravity. Undergraduates physics and astronomy designed and built an augmented-reality sandbox where users can design their own universe and then watch how gravity affects an object as it travels through the imagined environment.
