Homework Week 8: Due 15th September
Design your own rover!
This week you need to investigate the mars curiosity rover. Using the website below, read through the information provided and answer the following questions in your homework book:
- At what speed did the mars curiosity rover approach the planet mars?
- What is the purpose of having this rover on mars?
- What are the special features of this rover?
- What has the rover discovered about mars so far?
Now that you understand a little bit more about rovers and their purpose in space you have a top secret challenge to complete…
NASA need help to design the rover that will go up to the planet of your choice in 2020. Your design must be labelled with clear features explaining their purpose. Each feature also needs to be for the specific planet that you are choosing for your rover. You may need to do some research about your planet before you design your rover so you know what the atmosphere and environment will be like. Be creative, maybe some of the features that you put on your rover is technology of the future!
