Cameron Diaz teaches Robot IR-2 (Ed Wasser) how astronomers can measure the mass of asteroids from tremendous distances.

Specifically, it describes the formula "F=ma" and how it can be used in conjunction with measurements of the "Yarkovsky Effect," a force that can push around asteroids & other objects in space.

This video is part of the Robot Astronomy Talk Show series. It airs as part of NASA's IRrelevant Astronomy (the "IR" stands for "infrared"), a channel of comedic educational videos.
