Today we heard from both teachers and students. Teachers shared lessons they have planned using the All Stars website and all the astronomers stories. Students shared the research projects they have been working on. Both groups did a great job. I can’t wait to try some of the research projects myself and some of the lessons with my students. I have really enjoyed working with this group this summer.
- Prepping the Parker Solar Probe for Space
At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, the Parker Solar Probe is lowered into the 40-foot-tall thermal vacuum chamber. The thermal vacuum chamber simulates the harsh conditions that the spacecraft will experience on its journey through space, including near-vacuum conditions and severe hot and cold temperatures.
