I have another kids science document to share, its from NASA and is entitled, How Do You Make a Weather Satellite. If your child is addicted to technology like mine is, the same PDF is interactive online at this link.
How does a satellite stay up in space without falling back to Earth? How is a weather satellite able to take pictures or measure surface temperatures from space? How does a satellite communicate with Earth? These questions and more are answered in the booklet
If your child is interested but a little to old for the document, I have a YouTube video below the document.
I was surprised at how much information was online directed towards kids questions about NASA Satellite’s either NASA has a great outreach program, or there is a lot of online interest. Either way, if you child is into science then this is a win for them.[pdf-embedder url=”https://www.tngun.com/wp-content/uploads/NASA-How-Do-You-Make-a-Weather-Satellite.pdf” title=”NASA How Do You Make a Weather Satellite”]
What exactly goes into building a new weather satellite? This new animated video below explains how GOES-R was developed and how new science and technology on the GOES-R series satellites will provide significant advancements in the observation of severe weather.
