MISSION 3 - FIT FOR SPACE
It’s time to get Fit For Space! No, we’re not going all Joe Wicks on you (although we’d love to see a Space Shed/PE With Joe crossover). In this Mission, you’ll be finding out what it takes for astronauts to stay healthy in space, and prepare themselves for Extra Vehicular Activity (a.k.a spacewalks!). Mission 3 has been produced with our friends at the European Space Agency.
On the way to earning their fourth Badge, your Cadets will be planning a meal for Tim Peake to eat on the ISS. Can your space Masterchefs put together a menu that’s tasty, healthy and on-budget? And can they persuade UNSA’s Head Chef that the meal they’ve chosen is the best? As ever, there are plenty of Resources to help with these Tasks on our website, and lots of helpful videos in our ‘Fit for Space’ playlist on our YouTube channel.
Whether you just watch one video or go all the way and complete all the Tasks, as long as you and your Cadets learn something new this week, then you’ve done enough to earn the Fit for Space Badge, so don’t be shy about awarding it!
If any element of this Mission is proving difficult, there’s plenty of support if you need it - from the Mission Launch tips in the Mission 1 email, to the How To Do The Astro Science Challenge document and the FAQs section of the Astro Science Challenge website - we’re here to help! And, of course, you can email us (email@example.com) with any concerns.
