Dear Mr. Pahl,thank you for showing us this video, I learned a lot from it.I also thought that it was interesting to watch it.What are we doing next in space science? Sincerely, Phoebe
Phoebe,You're welcome. I'm glad you liked it and learned from it. There is so much I want to learn about space, too. I am going to enjoy learning more about it with you. next, we'll be doing some activities that help us think about and learn more about actual sizes of Earth, our moon, and the Sun, and we'll learn why the moon and the Sun appear so large compared to stars. It's going to be fun!Mr. Pahl
Dear phoebe,I am not Mr. Pahl But I would like to agree with you about that video. I agree with you about that video and how it taught us a lot. I would also like to ask you are you having fun doing space science if you are tell me in a reply. From, Gavin
Dear Pheobe, I would want to learn more about space, too, even though I already know a lot about it because even grownups keep learning. Also, I want to see more asteroid belts they talk about, such as the Kuiper and Scattered belt, because learning about space is so fun because you get to see new planets and galaxies and learn about them! From, Fiona
Dear Mr. Pahl ,Thank you for showing the class the video I Ashley learned something’s about the videoOn the blog. From Nyzel
Hi Nyzel,You're welcome. I'm so glad to hear you learned something. What did you find to be the most interesting part?From, Mr. Pahl
Dear Class,What I think about The Solar System is awesome for science because I would like to learn more about outer space and I would like to be in outer space to discover thing. Sincerely, Cathy
Cathy,Wouldn't it be terrific to get to go to outer space? I think it would be fascinating to see the Earth from space. Astronauts are very lucky. What would you like to do in outer space?From,Mr. Pahl
Dear Mr. Pahl,Thank you for showing us this video I learned a lot about our atmosphere that I never knew about.Sincerely, Rhiannon
Rhiannon,You're welcome! I am glad you learned something. What exactly did you learn? Mr. Pahl
Dear Austin,I don’t think we have enough technology to see even one other arm of the galaxy, but I am amazed that we do have the technology to see distant stars in our arm of the galaxy like Betelgeuse.Sincerely, River.
Dear Mr.Pahl, How come we don’t know so much about our universe? Do we have the technology to see the whole Milky Way galaxy or not?Sincerely,Austin
Hi Austin,I think there are many reasons why we don't know more about our universe. One of the those reasons is that it is infinite! Another reason is that even the planets in our solar system are very far away from us. We haven't figured out how to travel fast enough to get to outer space. Luckily, people are learning more about space travel, and scientists gather more information all the time. Maybe in your lifetime a human will visit Mars. Who knows? Keep thinking and asking great questions.Sincerely,Mr. Pahl
Dear Mr. Pahl, I never knew there was the Scattered belt filled with the minor planets and the remains of them. I can’t believe we are one of the 8 planets that never got turned into asteroids like the other 92 planets did. I learned that from this show called How the Universe Works. It tells you about not just the solar system, but the whole universe itself! I loved the Space School episode because I am very interested in astronomy, and I love to learn about that subject. Sincerely, Fiona Cooper.
Hi Fiona, Thanks for sharing what you learned. Who knows, maybe we WILL be turned into asteroids one day. There is so much we don't know about the universe. Let's keep learning together! From,Mr. Pahl
Dear Mr, Pahl,I totaly agree with you. Space is a mystery and I can not wait to learn more about it. I woud also love to be a asterroids but I like being a learnstronauts the best.Sincerely,Karoline
Dear Karoline,I think that you are right. Space is a big mystery and humans do not know much about it. By the way what would a learnstronaut do? I think they would go around space learning, what do you think they would do?From,Gavin
Dear Mr Paul,I agree with you and Karoline and Space is a mystery.I can't wait to learn more about space. From,Cathy
Dear Mr. Pahl,Thanks so much for teaching Room12 about space, so far I am very interested in the subject, I can't wait to learn more! Also, if there was a end of the universe, what would be at the end of the it?Sincerely,Sophia
Dear Mr. Pahl,It is so cool. That was very interesting. I love Space School.From, Eli
Dear Mr. PaulHello it's me Finnigan! Did you know without the Kuiper Belt Neptune and Uranus wouldn't be here? Well the theory goes that Juiper and Saturn's gravitational pull push Neptune and Uranus farther out of the solar system They would of gone hurtling out into deep space without a very special someone, the Kuiper Belt! All of the debris from the Kuiper Belt acted like a break and slowed Uranus and Neptune down and sent them back into the solar system and the Sun's orbit!From, Finnigan
PS. I am very into astronomy and if you have a question, ask me. I'll probably know it! From Finnigan
Dear Class,I am having so much fun learning about space. I had thought I new so much about space, but it turns out I do not. I hope all the students in room 12 are learning from it to.From, Gavin
Dear Class,That was a really interesting video. It helps explain how big space is. In the video it says our solar system is just a tiny corner in the Milky Way galaxy! But to us our solar system seems gigantic, and there are lots of other galaxies in space think of how big space is! From, Julia
Dear Mr. Pahl, Is our solar system special in the Milky Way galaxy? Please tell me when you know. Sincerely, Austin
Dear Mr. Pahl, What is your favorite planet in our solar system? Is it Mars, Saturn, Earth or Jupiter? Please tell me. Sincerely, Austin
Dear Mr. Pahl,I loved the video Space School! It is a really interesting video. I cannot wait to learn more about Space and what lies beyond. Thank you Mr. Pahl for letting us learn about Space. Sincerely,Karoline
Dear Mr. Pahl,Why is there a ring of asteroids around our planet? From,Sebastian
Dear Mr. Pahl Have scientists found out about any other planets than the eight in our solar system and the dwarf planets.
Dear anybody who reads this comment,Today I learned why Pluto is not a planet, that Earth is the 6th biggest planet. I also now know my fives time tables better. Apparently, Pluto is not a planet because it can only be a planet if, one it orbits around the sun, two it must have sufficient gravity to maintain its spherical shape, three after millions of collisions the body must have cleared away other objects from its orbital neighborhood, the last point is where Pluto fails. Sincerely, Miranda
Dear, mr.pahlWow! Can you even believe that the there is so many HUGE planets?There are planets bigger than the sun! And I thought Earth was so big, wrong! It’s like a tiny speck to the biggest star known! Planets and stars can get so big! Smallest, to BIGGEST! So big! On the video I thought they weren’t going to be so big! They can get pretty gigantic! From, Alanis
