Spectacular Spacecraft, Extraordinary Missions With Staci Tiedeken
Cruise through the solar system with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. We’ll explore groundbreaking space missions to destinations such as Saturn’s exotic moon Titan, our neighboring planet Venus, and the near-Earth asteroid Bennu, the source of NASA’s first asteroid sample, which is aboard a spacecraft making its way back to Earth now.
Looking to expand your space horizons even further? Try out these hands-on activities from NASA at home:
• Mars Ingenuity Paper Helicopter: Build a paper helicopter and then see if you can improve the design like NASA engineers did when making the first helicopter to land on Mars.
• Make an Astronaut Lander: Design and build a lander that will protect two “astronauts” when they touch down.
• #MyOSIRISREx Pocket Spacecraft: While the real OSIRIS REx spacecraft is working to bring a sample of asteroid Bennu back to Earth, you can take your own pocket spacecraft for an adventure right at home.
Registration is requested through Eventbrite in order to receive a secure Zoom Webinar link.
