Space

We were lucky enough today to take part in two workshops today run by AfRIS (Astronomy for Remote and Island Schools.)    We learned that an astronomer studies Space and in the first session he taught us all about Earth, the sun and the moon.  In the afternoon session we got the chance to learn all about the other planets in space.  We were amazed to learn that Mars has both a south pole and a north pole, the biggest volcano in the solar system is on Mars and that on the moon we can jump 6 times higher than we can on Earth!
