In the Infographic "Waste in Space," the artist writes about how space waste is a serious problem. It said that we could easily hit a big piece of space junk and our trip would be ruined. It also explained that there are 500,000 pieces of space of metal in in space. THAT'S A LOT! Another thing it told me about is that it increases explosions and collisions. In 2007 China's weather Satellite hit a piece of space junk and it got destroyed. China lost millions of dollars that day and a lot of hard work. _____I think this would be a good source to check out 4th. The reason why I think this is because space junk is a really big problem in space. So that would mean for a newbie who is learning about this topic would learn that in the future space junk can be a big problem to going to other planets.
In the TedEd video called "Who Won the Space Race," Jeff steers explains that the space race started when the USSR launched the first satellite in space on October 4, 1957. When the Russians launched the first satellite into space it started the space race. The space race ended for about 12 years long. It ended on July 20th 1969 when the US launched Neil Armstrong off to the moon. _____I think this video would be a good source to watch third, because the space race was a critical point of the worlds history on space travel. Everyone who wants to learn about space should learn about the space race. Another thing why this is in the top three is because if it wasn't for the space race w wouldn't have many things in our normal lives.
In the article "The Apollo Space Program," NASA.gov talks about how the Apollo space program had many accomplishments. It said that humans walked on the moon for the first time on July 20, 1969. It also said that the rocket they were on was called Saturn V. It stated that this whole project started when president J.F.K challenged NASA to go to the moon. ____I think that this is a good article to read second because this article talks about USA greatest space accomplishment for being the first country to land on the moon. This is a good article also because it was early in space travel and also it was the biggest thing ever because now we know that we can concur many planets now. That is why you should read this article third.
In the timeline called "space history," www.spacekids.co.uk talks about how the history of early things going into space. It says that lots of animals went into space before humans did. Another thing it said that Russia launched the first satellite into space; Sputnik. A cool thing it also said is that the first women went to space was Valentina Tereshkova on a 1963 mission. _____I think that if a newbie on the topic space had to choose which of the sources to choose from first it would be this one. The reason why I say this is because this source talks about the history of space travel in great detail. It also has a part the talks about the future and what people think we will be doing in like 10 to 15 years. Also another reason why I think this is because I think it is always good to have a little history knowledge on any topic before they read something else on the topic.
