That ‘s when we experience the four seasons. Therefore during different times of the year daylight hours change. •The axis that the earth spins around is tilted . •While this happens the side of the earth facing the sun gets sunlight and has day time.What causes night and day…? • Earth spins around its axis and at the same time rotates around the sun as well. •For Earth to complete a full rotation it takes approximately one day which is 24 hours. Winter days are shorter and Summer days become longer. •Throughout the day when we look up we see the sun in different positions. . The other side having no light experiences night time. The sun rises from the East and sets in the west.

It is the area where the light is blocked . . it passes over the edges of the object and falls on the surface.Shadows What are shadows? A shadow has an outline. Inside the outline it is dark. When the person or object moves the shadow moves too. When sunlight is not able to reach through something. Shadows form at different places depending on where the sun is. How do they form? Shadows form when an object or person blocks the sunlight and the outline of their body falls on the surface they are standing on . The size of the shadow depends on where we stand and how much light falls on it. This creates a shadow.

When you shine the torch far from the object the shadow forms smaller.8 23.4 9.2 Investigating shadows on an object by shining a torch at different angles. When the torch is shone above the object the shadow forms around the object. Height of the shadow (cm) 13.Experiment – 1 Investigating shadows on an object by shining a torch at different distances.4 Conclusion .When you shine the torch close to the object the shadow forms bigger. . Conclusion – When you shine the torch from the front or back of the object the shadow falls on the opposite side. Object and screen settings Object halfway between torch & screen (15cm) Object closer to the torch (10cm) Object moved away from the torch (25cm) Experiment .

They had to make sure that the space shuttle was not too big. The forward docking port was removed so the pilot did not control it directly. The seats needed to be taken away because they would stand when flying and was held by a lever and pulley. . They had to make the craft have less weight in it so it would be easier for it to lift up in the blast off.Apollo Lunar Module How has the design changed of the LEM as the program progressed…? The heavy cockpit windows were removed and smaller triangular shaped ones put in which also had light weight glass.

maybe millions of dollars for astronauts to perform a mission. I definitely think that we should spend millions of dollars to explore space. Scientists have not found everything about space yet. We can live in a peaceful world and learn more about what is ahead of us in space. . The population of earth is increasing tremendously . the far away galaxies. water and food we shall start a new life there. It costs a lot of money . By doing research we will be lucky enough to overcome them. Therefore on my opinion. There are so many natural disasters in our world so that some day earth will be completely wiped out. should we spend money to learn more about space or not? I strongly believe that we should spend millions of dollars to explore space. There are maybe unknown dangers up in space such as asteroids or aliens. We could be lucky enough to find natural resources benefiting our industries as well. but scientists do not know about everything . So. It is a great help for us in the future and it is extremely important. Why shouldn’t we ? It is 100% better than wasting money on weapons to fight a war. Therefore if we find another suitable planet having the basic needs for a human to live such as oxygen.Do you think we should spend millions of dollars to explore space…? There are many amazing things out in space.

The Haylley's comet was last seen in 1986 and will be next seen in the year 2061. The frozen water & carbondioxide in the comet directly turns from solid to gas when closer to the sun.Haylley’s Comet  The Halley's comet is the most well – known comet passing through the sky every 75 yrs or so. The name “Haylley’s Comet” was after a English astronomer called Edmond Haylley who discovered it as a periodic comet.000km. It is small and shaped like a peanut  It makes the journey around the Solar System as an invisible rock made of dust and ice. The tail can be long up to 100. This makes the tail called the “coma” & it always faces the sun. . It appears in short period of time unlike others that appear in thousands of years. The comet collided with Jupiter in the year of 1994(eight years after it was seen by earth).
