In honor of New York City getting a space shuttle (albeit a prototype) your Spring Break assignment revolves around space and the solar system.
Go to this website:
It is an interactive view of the solar system. You can click on planets to zoom in on them, you can also rotate your view around the plantes, and solar system as a whole, to get a 360 degree view. You can measure the distance between different stars and planets.
Your assignment is:
Go to the Solar System Scope website.
Click on the planets. Look at them, rotate them.
Write a response to the site as a comment here on the blog.
- Here are some questions to get you thinking about the type of response to write:
> What do you think about the site?
> Did you learn from it anything from it?
> Does it make you think about space differently than before you saw the website?
Add your thoughts about the website as a comment. Please comment in full and complete sentences.
