On 28th Nov 2016, we did a task of mission x ‘Base Station Walk Back’. We carried out this activity on the field of Joseph high School. We marked the line with the flour at about a distance of 30 meters. We didn’t have a enough space so we adjusted within a small area.
For this, we sprinted 100 m (110 yards) then walk 100 m (110 yards) and repeated this four times making several loops. We sprinted 13 m (42 ft) touching the floor with the hand and reversed immediately to where we started and touch the floor. We did this for two times. We repeated the above intervals, at last we increased the distance by doing the intervals four times instead of two.
Finally we collected data and completed the task.
On 20th Oct 2016, we did the task of mission x ‘Hydration station’. For this activity we distributed the hydration station data sheet among us and took to respective home. We recorded the mission data for 24 hours and gathered the data sheet on next day.
We didn’t have food coloring so we used shine pen color with water. We did it as like as mission x video and compared the color between our mission data.
Finally we collected mission data. From this we knew that we should be hydrated any time.
On 8th Nov 2016, we did one of the interesting task of mission x ‘Living bones strong Bone’. We did the following steps while carrying out this task:
1) First we studied the index card. Discussed the shape, size, and thickness of bones. Decided how we would like to design our group bone model from the index card. Designed a bone model making sure our bone model is: made much like the chicken bone, and study enough to hold weight.
2) Completed our individual bone model design drawing on our own piece of graph paper.
3) Labeled the materials in our design on your graph paper.
On 10th day of November 2016, we did the task of Mission X ‘Mission: Control.’ For this 1st of all we classified ourselves into two groups and we did warm up. We initiated our activity as follows:
First we bounced a tennis ball off a wall while balancing on one foot. We did this for 60 seconds. Without taking a break, we changed legs and balanced on the opposite foot for 60 seconds. We took rest for 30 seconds and repeated this routine five times.
Then we conducted the above acceleration while balancing one foot on a small trampoline.
We played the Balance Training Game with a partner by balancing one foot on a small trampoline.
Finally we hydrated ourselves and collected the mission data and we completed our task.
This activity was so interesting, we all enjoyed this task.
On 25th day of November 2016 we did a task of Mission X ‘Building an Astronaut Core.’ For this we first classified ourselves in two groups. We did this activity in a little comfort zone of Joseph High School.
First of all, we maintained our position by lying down our stomach, resting on our forearms, making a fist with each hand, placing our knuckles on the floor shoulder width apart.
Then we began to complete as many crunches as possible in one minute. We took rest for two minutes. After that we stabilized our body for 30 seconds by using our arm muscles and pushing our body off the floor supporting our weight on our forearms and toes. Finally we collected the mission data and hydrated ourselves.
