It’s commonly believed that astronauts on the space station are weightless because of the absence of gravity, yet the pull of gravity on the space station is virtually the same as here on Earth.
In this YouTube clip, Dr Derek Muller gives a very clear and entertaining explanation of the real reasons why astronauts float in space.

The Naked Vocational Trainer
On leaving school, I began training as an electrical technician with BT in central London. At the age of forty, following a varied career, I went on to gain 26 years experience in further education as a lecturer and NVQ assessor/verifier. I am a retired member of the Institute of Engineering & Technology and have published a text book (The Nuts and Bolts of Training and Assessment) which covers a variety of training methods and training principles. My book is intended to provide an accessible introduction for those starting a career in vocational training.

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Hi, you need no coding skills to build a WordPress website. However when you need to edit a page it can be necessary to go into the HTML. A little knowledge goes a long way as HTML is often self explanatory. I suggest you try to find a simple introduction to HTML. I attended a night school class for about 6 hours. I hope this helps.
