Fourth and Fifth Grade students had the opportunity to see the landing of the Mars InSight mission this week. Students heard the mission specialists explain about the challenges of safely landing on Mars and discussed the added challenges involved in bring people to the Red Planet. They learned how the scientific and engineering principles they are learning in class are applied in actual scientific situations. They shared the excitement felt by those in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California when the spacecraft safely went through each step on its way to a safe touchdown. Attached is a video explaining what they witnessed. https://mars.nasa.gov/resources/22133/insight-landing-on-mars/
