Every big machine relies on a series of simple machines to get the job done. Can you name the six simple machines? The air- and spacecraft at the National Air and Space Museum operate thanks to simple machines, and we even use simple machines to put our artifacts on display. In this episode we'll look at what can be accomplished with six simple machines that make hard work easier.
