100wc- they are exhausted

100wc- they are exhausted

Slam poem-

Homework,  almost universally dreaded

Students, Given short periods of time,

They are exhausted, yet expected to produce high standards of topics crammed into theirs minds

Dance, soccer, martial arts,

Why aren’t we encouraged to persue our passions in our free time

Instead we a pushed to write a reflection each week

Almost Always about a topic that to most is bleak

Now I’m not saying stop it all in general

But you can always look at how Finland’s doing

To me they seem just fine

And in my humble opinion thats how we get students to shine

Fact- Around the late sixties the interest in heading to space had sky rocketed. Russia launched the first human to space his name being Yurie Gagarin travelling there in the Vostok 1. Suddenly America took interest it this and launched the first people on the moon. Then they built the international space station (ISS). Now we have so many ideas about space trips like getting humans to mars by 2030 and even filming a reality TV show in MARS. Businesses like virgin galactic and other companies have talked about making commercial trips to space (costing 300 000 to 400 000 dollars). 

Question- why haven’t humans started to live on the moon already?

Who’s Idea was it to send people to space?

 

Insight-

I now know that people have so many ideas about space travel and we have so many possibilities for what’s to come in the future.

 

100wc (we seemed to be on televisions)

100wc (we seemed to be on televisions)

We had safely escaped the government facility. All 15 people safe and rested. Our group, a group of seemingly average people, made it out. Our screams as we sprinted down the long white corridors. The black badged guards chasing us. With the punishment of death on the table forfeiting was not an option. When we got back to the central city we would have to hide in plain sight. That was until we realised that we seemed to be on televisions all around the country. Our supposedly perfect plan was now far from plausible and our chances of success now halved we were disheartened.

Bricks   Gorilla   Yellow   Running   Pretty

It was the night of graduation, and like all the other petty school girls I had gotten a dress. It was yellow with a mint green floral print. I remember running into the graduation hall with a huge grin on my face. Greeting me was Ella halls the annoying rich kid, ‘ Where did you get your dress, target, anyway I don’t speak to gorilas, bye love’

My heart sank, the feeling of pretty suddenly gone, I ran into the bathroom stalls staring at the dark blue brick hoping no one would come and find me. 

Btn mars dome experiment

Btn mars dome experiment

  • Fact-
  • To see how humans would cope on mars nasa has gotten 6 people to stay in a dome near a Hawaiian volcano  for a year. 
  • To send people to mars it would take 1-3 years, the biggest obstacle is seeing if humans can withstand this feat. 
  • ‘You have little to no privacy,  restricted space and basically the same meal every day.

 

  • Questions-
  • How long will the team of astronauts (once sent to mars) stay in mars?
  • How long will/ did it take to get resources to go to mars?

 

  • Insight- 
  • Now I understand that it will be extremely difficult for humans to cope on the journey to mars and on the planet itself.

She was lucky not to be executed, how dare one slyly disregard my authority. I remember her look of terror as slave 372 slipped on the white metal cuffs, it gave me pleasure watching the bloody marks the cuffs left, her pale hands fumbling.

She was oblivious to my position as leader and obviously did not respect my status.

‘Clean my desk,’ I roared.

’Why,’ her pale blue eyes confused.

BECAUSE I SAID SO!’, my eyes filled with rage.

Shaking my head in disbelief I beckoned gaurds  ordering the rest of her youth and mature life to be a mute slave.

Solar system video reflection

Solar system video reflection

This text was about the solar system:

  • There are 4 gas giants and 4 terrestrial planets
  • Mars has a mountain 26km high 
  • Venus temperature never drops below 476 degrees due to its out of control greenhouse affect
  • Jupiter is the largest planet with 67 moons and a storm 3 times the size of earth 
  • Saturn is the second largest and is the least dense of them all
  • Uranas is the third largest and but is by far the coldest 
  • Due to Neptune being so far from the sun a year on that planet is 164 earth years
  • The sun is made up of hydrogen and helium 
  • There are two belts of asteroids in our solar system

Questions:

How do find out specific statistics on other planets if we’ve never gone there and (other than mars) have no rovers there?

Why is earth and other terrestrial planets so much smaller than gas giants?

Insight:

I now know many facts about the solar system and understand that its a complicated place and that earth is just like a spect of dust in our Milky Way, ect. 

Btn mars rover

Btn mars rover

This video was about a rover called curiosity. It was one of the fist rovers landers on mars. It was equiped with drills to take samples from mars’ surface and even a high powered laser. It took 8 months or 200 day to get curiosity to mars, and curiosity had to withstand 16000 degrees during the journey and that wasn’t event the hardes part. The seven minutes of terror was- you had 7 minutes slow down curiosity 20 000 degrees to 0 and safely land the rover on mars in one piece. Australia also had their part to play- satellite disks in Canberra were used to replay files from curiosity as well. 

Question-

Who designed curiosity primarily?

How many people did it take to complete this mission? 

 

Insight-

I leanrnt from watching this video is that there are so many things that have to take place before humans can inhabit mars and get rovers there is just a small but important part.
