Spacecraft photographs Mars - level 1
India launches a spacecraft. It flies towards Mars. It arrives there and it takes pictures. The mission costs 74 million dollars.
The pictures are great. One picture shows the planet from pole to pole. You can see a big storm in the picture. The spacecraft took the picture 46,292 miles (74,500 km) above the planet.
Difficult words: launch (to make a spacecraft leave our planet), spacecraft (a machine which can travel in space), pole to pole (all of the planet – from one point to another).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
