Our boys were getting into a bit of a flat spin about Easter… “What about the egg hunt with our friends??? Aw, we cannot miss that too!”
So we had a think and came up with “Spacetastic!” a virtual egg hunt + quiz that everyone can play from the comfort and safety of their own homes. We have hidden TEN GALACTIC EGGS and Space Fact Boxes all over the Spacelab website! Can you find them all? Look out for the Bonus Tiebreaker Egg. Follow the hunt with our Quizzz, see how many Space Facts you learnt along the way! Everything you need to play is right here including a Checklist + Quiz Sheet. Scroll down to find them. Ready? Set? Go!
Happy Easter Everyone.
I am Venus. the second planet from the Sun, neighbour to Earth and nearly as large. I was the first planet to be explored by human probes when Mariner 2 approached me in 1962. A second probe, Venera 7 landed on my surface in 1970. and transmitted 20 minutes of surface data to Earth. This was enough data for Scientists to establish that humans would not survive on my surface unaided. Those were the very first days of interplanetary exploration by humans.
I am the second brightest celestial object in the night sky after the Moon. and together with Mercury we are the only planets in the Solar System not to have any moons.
Remember to hover over the egg to reveal the true colours of Venus and tick the box on your Galactic Checklist.
