Mars rover information

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
