  • 2. How many journeys have there been to the moon.During 6 lunar landing operations, 12 humans landed on the moon:Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin in 1969Charles Conrad and Alan Bean in 1970Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, David Scott and James Irwin in 1971.And last of all John Young, Charles Duke, Eugene Cernan and HarrisonSchmitt in 1972.12 People have also orbited around the moon:Apollo 8: Frank Borman, James Lovell and William Andres.Apollo 10: Thomas Stafford, John Young, Eugene Cernan.Apollo 11: Michael Collins, Apollo 12: Richard Gordan, Apollo 13: James LovellApollo 14: Stuart Roosa, Apollo 15: Alfred Worden, Apollo 16: Ken MattinglyApollo 17: Ronald Evans.

  • 4. • The first thing in a rocket was a dog and its name was laika and died from over heating. The first rocket which could fly enough to get in space was the v2 missile which was first lunched by the Germans in 1945. The first rocket which actually launched something into space was used to launch sputnik, the first satellite, on October 4, 1957. The rocket that launched sputnik was a R-7 ICBM rocket.• David & Tyler
  • 5. Rocket Propellant is a material that is used toproduce a chemical reaction. This reaction mass that is ejected, typically at high speed, from arocket engine to produce a thrust. For those who don’t know what a thrust is, it is a sudden jolt up or forwards. In a chemical rocket, propellants undergo chemical reactions to produce hot gas. For smaller altitude, control thrusters, the compressed gas escaped the spacecraft. By Kayla, Cappy and Nikita
  • 6. The first man made thing to land on the moon was the sovietunion Luna 2 13 September 1959.The United States of America Apollo 1 was the first mannedto land on the moon on the 20th of July 1969. 6 mannedMoon landings between 1969 and 1972Some people say moon landing were fake. But evidenceproves Moon landings were real. anyone with the right laserand telescope set up can bounce lasers of retro reflectorswhich are fancy mirrors
  • 7. NASANASA’S vision: To reach for new heights and to reveal the unknown so that we do and learn will benefit all humankind. To do that thousands of people have been working around the world and off it for 50 years to answer some basic questions. President Dwight D.Eisenhower established the national aeronautics and space administartionIllandra & Brittney
  • 8. Projects• Project Gemini focused on experiments to do with practicing techniques for lunar missions. It ran from 1962-1966.Lunar missions- A moon landing is the arrival of a spacecraft on the surface of the Moon.• Project Mercury was the first human space flight program of the U.S.A. It ran from 1959-1963• Project Apollo was one of the most expensive American scientific programs ever. It is estimated to have cost $202 billion in present-day US dollars. It ran from 1961-1972• Project Skylab was the United States first and only independently built space station. It ran from 1973-1979.• Project Space shuttle became the major focus of NASA in the late 1970s and the 1980s. It ran from 1981 – 2011.By Khayla and Mya

  • 10. Space Station A space station is a spacecraft capable of supporting a crewwhich is designed to remain in space for long periods of time.The two recent space stations were built in the years 1998 and2011. They are called the International Space Station (ISS) and the Tiangong 1. The ISS is an artificial satellite in Low Earth Orbit. The ISScomponents were launched by American Space Shuttles in the year 1998. The Tiangong 1 is China’s first space station. It successfully docked with a module in November 2011.Up to ten people can stay in a space station for more than two days.The International Space Station is 108.5 meters by 72.8 meters. It weighs 450 tons, which is the size of 450 small passenger cars. By Selena Hansen-Purchas and Ryder Goddard!!!
  • 11. Because of gravity if you drop something itfalls down instead of up. Well everybodyknows that. Gravity has played a big part inmaking the universe the way it is.Taupiri & Cody
