Flight to the moon

Duration: 10 Minutes Audience: Under 12 years+

In 2009, two unnamed spacecraft, the LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) and LCROSS (Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite) launched together to explore the Moon in new ways.                                                                                                The LRO spacecraft continues to map the Moon in unprecedented detail. LCROSS delivered the Centaur impactor into a shaded lunar crater (called “Cabeus”) near the lunar south pole, creating a plume for the spacecraft to fly into and collect data to look for water. This post-impact version has been updated to include results from the LCROSS mission and orbital photography from LRO.

An Introduction to Astronomy

Duration: 28 Minutes Audience: 12 years+ / Family

Astronomy is the oldest science, with the first observations of the heavens conducted by our early human ancestors.Historical records of astronomical measurements date back as far as Mesopotamia nearly 5000 years ago, with later observations made by the ancient Chinese, Babylonians and Greeks. Humans seek to explain their world with (internal) models; one of the earliest is that the affairs of human and the world are controlled by the positions of the stars and planets.Although astrology is now regarded as a psuedoscience, it was the original motivation for the mapping of the stars and the assignment of constellations.
