Everyone was very excited to hear about all the different spacecraft exploring the solar system and mainly how they take all those amazing images of the planets. They were so amazed at the new Rover on Mars called Perseverance with its little companion helicopter called Ingenuity…Wow, how cool is that little helicopter!!!
I gave an in-depth talk about how the Cassini spacecraft travelled through the solar system to go into orbit about the stunning ringed planet Saturn. And explained how for nearly 15 years the spacecraft took incredible pictures of Saturn and its remarkable Moons, for us to marvel at!
I had a lot of fun on the day and really enjoyed getting back to taking about all the awesome things happening with the exploration of our solar system, please see some pictures from the day below, Noeleen :-)
Please note: Unfortunately the other Astronomy & Space sessions had to be cancelled because of a resurgent of the new Omicron variant of Covid. Hopefully we’ll rescheduled the events at a later date, please keep safe and well until then, all the best...Noeleen
