  1. I enjoyed the trip. I learnt that astronauts have to exercise 2 and a half hours a day in space just to make sure they don’t get used to space.

  2. This day was so fun I loved it thank you all for this. My fav Rio Ute part of the day was the big white building shaped as a rocket it was so fun and had loads of things to explore.

  3. I have learnt that astronauts have to exercise for 2 hours to be safe and not get sick .
    There is no gravity in space so if u spill some water it will float

  4. I have learnt that rovers were set to Mars to try and discover if life is viable on Mars and that it takes nearly a whole year to get to Mars from Earth.

  5. 1. Solar eclipse happen when the moon blocks the sun for a few seconds or minutes.
    2. The art is pop art.
    3. Astronauts need to be fit because they need to survive the low gravity. They need at least 2.5 hours of training.
    4. I learned that meteorites can be very small to see but do less damage than bigger ones that can be easier to dodge but when hit does massive damage so they train for a long time.

    Mars has a thicker atmosphere and
    Uranus is more stormy than it is 🌑

    I’ve learned that space suits are very important not only for air but for the heat , coldness and meteors of all shapes and sizes.

  8. One fact I have learnt during the trip was when astronauts sleep they had their bunks or sleeping bags tethered to the wall so they do not run of.

  9. I’ve learned that astronauts have to do 2 hours and a half of exercise.
