Space exploration uses the fields of astronomy and technology to explore our solar system and beyond. Technology ranges from unmanned space probes to manned rocket and shuttle missions. In 1957, Sputnik was launched into outer space. This was the first artificial satellite sent out past Earth. Since then all planets have had missions visit them, collecting data about the atmosphere and surface, taking pictures and learning about the birth of our solar system. In his lesson, students will discuss some important missions, see some of the vehicles and probes sent to space, and even go to the surface of Mars to look at the rivers that have been found on the planet. Field trips include a 360 view of the Delta IV launch and Mars Rover Perseverance first view of Mars.
