Let your imagination soar to other worlds!
Please watch my video tutorial:
NEW VIDEO: Watch the Starlink launch from Wed, June 3rd and learn more about space travel as well as the historical launch from Saturday, May 30th. This is a REALLY cool 31:52 minute video. Do you like your internet? Did you know that satellites like the one in this video provide internet? Also, you can watch Falcon 9 return and land!! If you become an astronomer, astronaut, engineer, or work for NASA or Space X in any way, please don’t forget your 5th grade teacher who inspired you the last week of 5th grade! Drop me a line and invite me to a launch, please. :) Watch this interesting video:
Also, BONUS!! Try out the simulator that the engineer mentions in the video. Can you land on the International Space Station? Do you have the patience and spatial skills to help you do so? Try again until you are successful. Enjoy! Try the simulation here:
In the activity below, click on the blue letters to follow the link. Once there, click on “Explore the Galaxy” and then choose a destination by scrolling left and right. Below the artistic posters, click on”Explore the Surface” to see what artists have imagined other planets look like based on a little bit of data collected from observations by astronomers here on Earth. Look in the Science Google Classroom for my video tutorial for navigating the website today (Friday) at 8 am and for your own artistic challenge that you may post to Seesaw.
Activity: Exoplanet Travel Bureau
“With NASA’s Exoplanet Travel Bureau, you can imagine what it’s like to stand on the surface of far-away planets. Visit their website, and with the click of a button, you can pretend you’re standing on the surface of planets outside our solar system. On TRAPPIST-1d you can look up at the sky and see six other planets. You can also see what happens when you stand on a planet that has two stars (instead of one) in the solar system.”
If you like, read more about TRAPPIST-1d here (This was also assigned in Google Classroom): https://newsela.com/read/earthlike-planets/id/27304/
