Mission #53

January 2014

The University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS)

The AstroNuts went on a field trip for Mission #42 to watch the pros in action. We started the day by learning about the technology that goes into making a rover like Curiosity on Mars. Next up was the wind tunnel where the kids got to make paper airplanes and see how wind affects flight. Third was a Boeing 747 flight simulator, and last was a demonstration of quadrocopters and drones (which will also be making an an appearance at this years "What's Up in Space" Camp!)
