Science Week 2019

Destination Moon: More Missions, More Science

This week, National Science Week, is an annual celebration of Science in Australia.  With 2019 marking 50 years since the Moon Landing, this year's theme explores:

  • The scientists, engineers, chemists, designers, mathematicians, flight directors, software experts, aerospace technicians who made the NASA Apollo 11 Mission a success;

  • The space technologies and designs that have made more missions into space possible;

  • Future ambitions of the space industry being prototyped today, with plans to return to the Moon and other destinations in our solar system.

In today's Bulletin, we showcase the Year 4's adventures in space, via Virtual Reality (VR) googles.
