Perfect paragraph using 5 vocabulary words
finish pictures about outer Gas giants and 3 fact about each planet
Questions 7-10 should be answered by the weekend and 1-6 should be started

Moon Landing Mission and Spacecraft Mission 200 pts
4 people per group
Products – 1 living station ( product discussed in class) Space engineer
1 Lunar module ( variation of model of living station) Aerospace engineer
1 page paper on the Apollo Missions and the moon – Linguistics Specialist
And a picture of the area on Mars we are landing complete with 3 points of contact (ipad)
Aerospace geologist
The mission and take off to Mars is fast approaching. The WSA needs more answers. They have asked that a team of 4 volunteers guide a mission to the moon before we begin our mission and new life on Mars. While they believe that your efforts are admirable they still do not want to spend the 200 billion dollars necessary for your project to be a success until you can prove to design a model of the lunar module and your living station. The asteroid has also seemed to slow down due to new calculations and has allowed you 1 extra year to prepare. You will need to bring 1 Aerospace engineer to build the lunar module and 1 space engineer to build the living station. Since we will need a full report of what is going on, we also need a Linguistic specialist to document the importance of the Apollo missions and how the moon was formed and to teach this information to the others on this mission.
We also need a Aerospace geologist to draw us a colored map of where we will land including 3 contact points with their exact locations. These projects are due by Monday since we are on a tight deadline . May the force be with you!
The schematics for the lunar module and space station are on the website and in your notebook.
The map should be very detailed and contain exact locations
The report should be typed but may be written and added to your website on a new page titled Mission to the Moon
