Try a NASA resource center. That is where I got my video many years ago,
so many that it is on a Beta tape and having a Bata projector, still use
it.

Urs,

There is a video called "Skylab Physics". At one time it was available
at
Ztek.
A lot of weightless movements by astronauts. Also studies with a
gyroscope in zero gravity.

Do a little more of that work which you have confessed to be good,
Which you feel that society and your most Just Judge rightly demand of
you.
Cultivate the tree which you have found to bear fruit in your soil.
If you have any experiments you would like to try, try them.
Now's your chance.
Henry David Thoreau, Journal entry, 1850.
