2022 space exploration – level 1

02-01-2023 07:00

Many things happen in space exploration in 2022.

NASA’s Artemis 1 mission starts. It begins missions to the moon and Mars. A NASA rocket also successfully hits an asteroid. The rocket changes the asteroid’s movement. This is important to keep our planet safe. NASA builds the James Webb Space Telescope. It costs 9 billion dollars. The telescope takes beautiful pictures. People see things which they never see before.

Scientists take a picture of the black hole in the center of our galaxy. The black hole is called Sagittarius A. It is the second picture of a black hole in history.

Lastly, China builds its first space station. First three astronauts arrive there in November.

Difficult words: space exploration (send people and machines into space), telescope (an instrument to look at stars and other objects in space), galaxy (a system of millions of stars, gas, and dust).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
