Mars Rover Information
  • On November 26th, 2011, NASA launched the Curiosity rover to replace the Spirit and Opportunity
  • Curiosity landed on August 5th, 2012 and has been sending pictures and data back since
  • The project cost the US $2.5 billion, and Germany contributed an additional $3.1 billion.

mars rover information1
Mars Rover Information
  • Explore more about the Mars Space Laboratory at NASA’s mission control page
  • Follow the Mars Rover Mission Page link on Mr. A’s website and find the ‘Fact Sheet’
    • What is the Rover’s mission?
    • How long will it be on Mars?
    • What is one piece of equipment the rover has?
    • Using the ‘Latest image gallery’ explain what Abraham Lincoln has to do with the rover
  • When finished, get Rocket Science 101 app
mechanics of flight
Mechanics of FLIGHT
  • Rover traveled through atmosphere and space, which takes careful understanding of the mechanics of flight…
  • How do planes fly?
  • Forces of flight?

Lift

Thrust

Drag

Weight

the wing
The Wing
  • Plane wings have a distinct, curved shape
  • The shape is lets them achieve lift. How?
  • Diffusion! Air moves from high to low pressure
space and the atmosphere
Space and the Atmosphere
  • Earth’s atmosphere plays a large role for life on the planet, as well as objects leaving or entering the planet
  • Meteors burn up in atmosphere – Why?
    • Force of friction on air particles.

your goal
Your Goal
  • Explore the effects of atmosphere on the mechanics of flight!
  • Research the conditions of another planet in the solar system and explain how it would affect a probe of your creation using PowerPoint
  • Design your own mission and a rocket to escape from a specific planet in the solar system, then estimate its cost on a poster
  • Create a newspaperor blog story or news report about an imaginary space mission and shuttle launch that was unsuccessful and why.
your goal1
Your Goal
  • Research the atmosphere and terrain of a planet in the solar system and explain how it would affect a probe of your design sent there to explore
    • What are the gases present? What is the terrain like?
    • How does the atmosphere compare to Earth’s?
    • What is the weather like there? Wind speed? Etc.
    • Design a probe (like Curiosity) that can navigate the obstacles on this planet.
your goal2
Your Goal
  • Design your own mission and a rocket to escape from a specific planet in the solar system and estimate its cost on a poster
    • Why did we come to this planet (to collect samples, find a rare metal, explore) and why are we leaving?
    • What is the gravity like on the planet? Atmosphere?
    • What are we leaving with (people, equipment, etc.) and what does our rocket weigh?
    • Design a rocket using Rocket Science 101 app as a resource guide
    • Estimate how much power the rocket needs to leave the planet and how much it would cost to make
your goal3
Your Goal
  • Create a newspaperor blog story or news report about an imaginary space mission and shuttle launch that was unsuccessful and why
    • What is the point of this mission? (Put a satellite into orbit, explore a planet, etc.)
    • What were atmospheric conditions like? Were they abnormal? (Air pressure, wind speed, direction, etc.)
    • Which part(s) of the rocket malfunctioned? (Rocket Science 101 app)
    • Have quotes from an interview with a NASA official
    • Compare to the Challenger and Columbia Disasters
