As advances in space travel continue, governments and private organisations are planning to potentially return to the Moon, construct a space station in lunar orbit as a gateway to deep space missions, or for space tourism. This presentation highlights the life of an astronaut in space, challenges for astronauts to go beyond Low Earth Orbit, and survive the extreme hazards of the deep space environment. Learn about new moon-related discoveries, analogies to explain space concepts, clarifications of misconceptions about the Moon, fascinating facts, and simple useful ideas for the classroom. The presentation finishes with exciting satellite images of Earth and access to NASA’s disk of lunar samples collected by Apollo astronauts on Missions 15, 16, and 17.
