The Temple Space Cadets couldn't wait to start the Missions and have already completed 3 !!!
Firstly we did Speed of Light-looking at how we could improve our hand to eye co-ordination.Everyone found this activity really fun and all improved after practice.
Then we did Mission Control working on our balance-this was a lot harder but again the group really improved after some practise.We really enjoyed the balance game of passing the ball around the circle without anybody putting their foot down. We managed to get round the circle 9 times.We also tried the acceleration but did not have a trampoline although we did use balance boards instead.
British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake is looking forward to seeing schools across the world train like astronauts as part of Mission X. Tim will be the Mission X Ambassador on the International Space Station for Mission X. Tim's mission is called Principia and you can follow his mission on principia.org.uk. Tim is due to launch for the International Space Station on December 15.
The UK Space Agency is looking forward to seeing your blog posts and progress as you train like an astronaut. World Space Week is a great time to launch your training programme.
Scottish students celebrated the last day of Mission X in style with an astronaut trail at the Glasgow Science Centre, a planetarium show and an astronaut training trail. They met with ESERO Space Ambassador Laura Thomas and had an opportunity to view the eclipse! Here is one of the tweets from the day.
