Our Thoughts

We are the type of family who loves to discover how things are made.   Little Mammoth Media produces the kind of show where you learn what is all behind something like a zoo, an aquarium and more.  

Today as part of our homeschool, we sat down in front of the television and watched “The BIG Space Shuttle”.   We discover everything that is involved in preparing and flying the space shuttle from the construction to the training and much more.

It was interesting to watch this as the space shuttle program was close in August of this year.  The video starts with a commemorative mention of the crew that died during a mission on Columbia.   The space shuttle that you follow throughout the video is Columbia so it was a nice gesture to have included a little note about what happened to the shuttle in 2003.

While we watched the video, we learned quite a bit about the preparations around a mission, the training the astronauts are going through, the assembly of the space shuttle for a mission as well as life on board of the shuttle around Earth.    It was fun to see them practice zero gravity in the gigantic pool as well as in the special plane designed for this.  You could see that the astronauts were have a blast… 

We also learned more about the world’s largest radio telescope and the various locations where astronauts are trained.   The Space Camp has sparked the interest of my oldest son I think.   Maybe one day he will be able to attend it…  We also saw rockets which didn’t really flew as well as the first man on the moon.     Via the DVD we were able to visit up close and personal with the Mission Control, the launch pad, the shuttle itself as well as the astronaut.

This DVD was very informative and education.   I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a child who loves to discover how things are made.    This is definitively a wonderful DVD to have for your own personal library.
