How did we get to outer space?

Form three groups. Each group will watch a short video about the history of space flight and do the related exercise.

Group 1:
The history of space flight, Part 1

To infinity and beyond

You have already heard about Neil Armstrong.

Open the 3D scene to see Armstrong's spacecraft too.
What happened to the lunar module?

Picture

How do we get to space?

Spacecraft are propelled into space on gigantic rockets. Since the Earth's gravity is very strong, massive rockets need to be built to overcome this. The largest of these rockets was Saturn V, which was also used within the Apollo programme to propel spacecraft landing on the Moon into space.

How far could we go in the future?

Conquering Mars

In the future, NASA would first like to send people to asteroids and then to Mars. Similarly to NASA, private companies are planning both shorter and longer trips to outer space.
One of these private companies is SpaceX, which was founded to establish a self-sustaining human colony on Mars in the future.

Why is it so difficult to get to Mars?
