Write in Your Notebook Through Space Exploration we have: a.Landed probes on Mars and Venus and sent probes past Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus b.Built an International Space Station c.Built a Hubble Telescope
Write in Your Notebook Space Probes: Spacecraft that travels and drops into a planet’s atmosphere Has no astronauts onboard Collects scientific information and sends it back to scientists on Earth
Space Probes Today NASA's Voyager 1: 1 st human-made object to travel beyond the solar system 36-years-old About 12 billion miles from our sun.
Write in Your Notebook International Space Station (Known as ISS) A combined effort of 15 different countries
Write in Your Notebook International Space Station (ISS) Allows astronauts to live there for months to conduct research that cannot be done on Earth
Interesting ISS Facts The size of a football field Weighs 924,739 pounds. Has more livable room than a conventional six-bedroom house with 2 bathrooms, a gymnasium and a 360-degree bay window.

Write In Your Notebook NASA Spinoffs: Technology that was developed for astronauts and space exploration BUT now benefits us on Earth! MicrowavesTV Satellite Dishes Hand held calculatorsBar Coding Ear ThermometersMemory Foam
Another Important Telescope: Fermi-Gamma-ray Space Telescope -Has unveiled a previously unseen structure centered in the Milky Way that spans 50,000 light years and maybe the remnant of an eruption from a supersized black hole at the center of our galaxy.
NASA’s Fleet of “Great Observatories” 1.Chandra X-ray Observatory
Info about Chandra The X-ray Observatory Chandra allows scientists from around the world to obtain X-ray images of exotic environments to help understand the structure and evolution of the universe.
Space Probes over Time Sputnik 1: 1 st probe to go into space. It was launched on Oct. 4, 1957, by the former Soviet Union. Explorer 1: Jan. 31, 1958, the United States sent a probe into space. These first probes studied Earth from space. They also learned what it's like to be in space. This was the beginning of the Space Race between the United States and Soviet Union.
The Countries of the ISS Around the room Activity You will record information about each countries contribution to the ISS You will also draw and color each country’s flag
