On Thursday we had a special visitor at our school - Space Dave! Space Dave is a space expert who came to teach us about 'Our Place in the Universe'. Here are some of the things we learnt about him:
Titus: i learnt that planets are in solar systems and solar systems are in galaxies, and galaxies are in universes
Rhys: i learnt that in 5 billion years time a galaxy will collide with our galaxy
Oliver: i learnt that black holes would stretch you apart - this is called spaghetification
Makayla: i learnt that Uranus has rings
George: I learnt that the rings around Saturn have gaps in them where its moons orbit the planet
Rhiannon: i learnt astronaunts used to have to go to the bathroom in plastic bags in space. Now days they have special toilets that they use with a vacum in it!
Manx: i learnt that if you get sucked into a black hole you are gone forever
Leah: I learnt that galaxies are really really far far away from each other
Rigved: i learnt that there is planets in different galaxies. One galaxy has a pink sun, but this sun is quite cold.
Christian: i learnt that a black hole is currently sucking in a star of light right now
