Space Museum primary school

On Thursday 1 of March Year 3 and Year 5 journeyed through space on their excursion to Moscow’s Space Museum. Here they were led on a guided tour that discussed the first animal cosmonauts, the first people cosmonauts such as Yuri Gagarin, and what they wore in space. Students went on to learn about the first modular space station, Mir, which held the record for the longest uninterrupted human presence in space, at 3,644 days, until 23 October 2010 and had a greater mass than that of any previous spacecraft, holding the record for the largest artificial satellite orbiting the Earth until its deorbit on 21 March 2001.

The students enjoyed their time and received buttons and certificates for their participation.
