On April 3, the National Science Foundation, NASCAR and the University of Texas at Dallas announce a new online series of videos called, "The Science of Speed." The videos borrow illustrations from NASCAR racing to explain scientific principles such as friction, heat, drag and drafting. This is a screenshot from a segment titled, "Car Safety," which describes how the laws of energy help keep drivers safe.
