The United States made it to the moon first They were ahead in the space race Sientists hoped to build a space station This would be a laboratory in space were astronauts could live and study more about space
No human has ever gone to another planet But many unmanned space crafts have Mariner explored the atmosphere of Mars In 1976 Viking landed on Mars Saturn’s largest moon is Titan
1.Space travel is very dangerous and very expensive is it worth it? I think it is worth it ,because you get to see what is out in space 2. was Laika’s death a waste? I think it was a little good in some ways, and a little waste, because we learned a little but the Rushens killed a dog 3. would you be a good astronaut? I am not sure if I would be a good astronaut 4. if you could explore space or the deep sea which would you explore and why? I would explore the deep sea , because I like to swim.
Space is a great place but dangeres ,and expensve great to some of us but not all of us.
