Saturn  

           

Saturn  is  the  sixth  planet  out  of  the  eight  planets.     It  is  a  gas  giant  so  unlike  the  rocky  planets  like  earth,   it  has  a  lot  more  gas  and  it  has  very  bad  weather.     It  is  around  95  times  bigger  then  earth  and  has  no  life   on  the  planet.   It  was  discovered  by  Dutch  astronomer  Christiaan   Huygens  in  1659  and  solved  that  Saturn’s  so  called   arms  are  its  rings.  He  also  discovered  it’s  moon  Titan.

Uranus  

  Uranus  is  the  seventh  planet  from  the  sun.    It  is   classified  as  a  gas  giant  and  it  has  rings  (like  all   gas  giants).       Uranus  also  has  many  moons.    It  also  contains   ammonia,  methane  and  ice.    It  has  a  minimum   temperature  of  -­‐224  Celsius.       Sir  William  Herschel  discovered  Uranus  on   March  13th,  1781.  It  was  sighted  many  times   earlier  but  not  officially  confirmed.

Felix   Baumgartner   Felix  Baumgartner  amazed  the  world  by  free  falling  from   space  in  2012.    Here  are  our  editors  to  tell  us  their  opinions  on   this  miraculous  jump.  

“It  was  exhilarating  to  watch  it  was   unbelievable  how  he  did  something  so   brave.”   “It  was  mind-­‐blowing  how  Felix  didn’t   blow  up,  technology  these  days.”   “I  rate  it  5  stars  out  of  5  for  its  amazing   footage  and  his  bravery.”   “I  hope  he  does  more  of  these  amazing   things.”

We  surveyed  30  grade  5’s  and  Uranus Won  because  I  think  boys  wanted  to  be   chucklesome.  Neptune  got  the  least   because  it’s  the  furthest  planet. 12

How  to  find  a   constellation  

  What  you  need:  You  will  need  a  telescope  (optional.)   Has  to  be  nighttime.     Firstly  you  need  to  know  what  a  constellation,  stars   point  to  each  other  to  make  constellations.  Also  you   need  to  know  which  constellation  you  are  looking  for.   Some  constellations  only  appear  at  certain  times.     Secondly  sit  in  a  comfortable  position  then  stargaze   until  you  see  a  constellation.   Step  three  ENJOY!!!

An  Interview  Neil   Armstrong    

What  was  going  through  your  mind  when  you   stepped  on  the  moon?     “Well,  it  was  amazing.  My  heart  was  beating  rapidly,   it’s  hard  to  describe  but…  it  was  exhilarating.”     How  easily  was  it  to  eat  in  space?     “It  was  pretty  hard,  I  had  to  have  it  all  in  a  tube  and   had  to  suck  it  out.”     What  inspired  you  to  go  to  space?     “Well,  every  night  I  looked  at  the  moon  and  wondered  if   it  was  possible  to  go  there,  I  took  it  as  a  challenge  and   accomplished  it.”     If  you  had  a  choice  to  go  to  another  planet  what  will  it   be,  why?     “I’d  say  Mars  because  it’s  always  been  such  a  mystery   and  always  wondered  if  it  had  life  on  it.  Also  there  was   signs  of  life  along  time  ago  I  find  it  very  intriguing.”     How  did  you  go  to  toilet  in  space?

“Well  you  have  to  get  strapped  to  the  toilet  so  you  don’t   float  off  very  challenging.”     Did  you  think  you  were  in  safe  hands  or  were  you   terrified?     “I  was  a  bit  of  both,  I  was  terrified  but  I  knew  I  was   safe.  I  was  a  bit  more  terrified  then  thinking  I  was  safe.”       Was  your  spacesuit  heavy  before  you  launched  into   space?  Also  how  much  does  it  weigh.     “It  was  significantly  heavy,  I  couldn’t  bare  it.  I  don’t   know  how  much  it  weighed  but  it  was  fairly  heavy.”     Were  you  worried  about  breathing?     “It  was  frightening  when  I  was  breathing  because  if  my   helmet  came  off  I  was  history.”     What  would  you  rate  the  whole  journey  out  of  10?     “I’d  say  ten  because  the  experience  on  another  whole   world  and  being  on  our  moon  and  zero  gravity   exhilarating.”       Thank  you  for  participating  in  this  interview.

Black  Hole  

      A  black  hole  is  a  object  in  space  its   gravitational  pull  is  fast  enough  to  pull  light   in  it.     A  black  hole  could  suck  in  anything  with  its   power.   A  black  hole  after  awhile  it  disappears  into   nothing  and  any  planets  sucked  n  or   anything  is  gone  forever.  No  evidence  of  it   ever  being  there.   It  has  a  massive  magnetic  field  the  power  of   it  is  tremendous  gravity.
