Science with Virgin Galactic: Testing a spaceship
With many schools worldwide closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Virgin Galactic is continuing to provide support for parents homeschooling their kids with their Science With Virgin Galactic series.
Each week they’re hosting a Spacechat live on YouTube with experts from around the company. This week, they’ll be explaining how to get a spaceship ready for commercial service.
The chat will be live streamed today (April 23rd) at 5.30pm BST (12.30pm ET/9.30am PST) so make sure you’ve got an alarm set.
Last week’s session taught children how to design a spaceship that can successfully travel to space and back. Take a look at the video below to watch the whole session.
Next week, the Virgin Galactic team will be hosting a science lesson on flying a spaceship. Head over to the Virgin Galactic YouTube channel for 5.30pm BST (12.30pm ET/9.30am PST) on April 30th to learn more, or set a reminder now.
Catch up on the science lessons you’ve missed so far from Virgin Galactic.
