Summary
  • Space exploration: Human minds have been dreaming of the sky and stars since we first became aware of our limitations. Our dreams have propelled us into orbit, to the moon and back and today we are expanding our horizons even further, making plans to build a lunar base and colonize the planet Mars. This program looks at the development of in space technology from building the International Space Station to terraforming Mars and mining the asteroids. Students learn how space exploration opens up a whole new world of possibilities
  • Comet : visitors from space: Comets have been causing fear in the minds of humans for millennia. Now spacecraft are helping us to understand what they are made of and how they behave. The time it takes for a comet to make one complete orbit around another object is known as the orbital period. The range of a comet's orbital period may be from a few years to hundreds of thousands of years. This program will help students understand why comets cause both fear and fascination
  • Space science : studying distant Pluto: Scientists have been debating the planetary designation of Pluto ever since it was discovered in 1930. In this program, students are given a firsthand look at the scientific process that first classified Pluto as a planet and then reclassified it as a dwarf planet in 2006. Not all scientists are in agreement with this definition and the future may bring further reclassification. Also, students will learn the scientific process of categorizing a planet and details about this tiny world at the farthest reaches of our solar system
