Satellites and Space Stations

Today we learned about satellites and how they are made to go around a specific orbit. Also, about the names of each orbit. We also learned about the INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION. It takes the space station about 90 minutes to just go around the EARTH once.  That way it’s able to outrun the EARTH and stay in orbit.  We also kept building with the LEGOs. Today i helped build the NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, it wasn’t easy building it but after some work we came up with some good ideas and finally finished it. It still needs some final adjustments, but those will be made next time we work on the city.

Satellites and the Way They Orbit

Today we learned about space and wireless communications. We learned about satellites and the way they orbit. We spent a lot of time discussing Newton’s laws. We also discussed ellipses and the patterns planets make when they orbit. Towards the end of the day, we finished all of our major buildings. The nuclear plant I was working on finally got finished and it looks great.
