Science Learning Challenge: Will we ever send another person to Space?
We LOVE learning about Space! We have learnt about relative sizes of planets, and how far each is from the sun, as well as thinking about what it takes to be an astronaut and designing our own suits.

Neptune is so far away from the sun that we didn't have enough, and had to use ourselves instead!
