Te Reo Coulors

Mission to Jupiter
On the 21st of september 2003 NASA’s spacecraft Galileo Galilei was sent into jupiter’s atmosphere. It was the end of an adventure that took 14 years that included spectacular discovery, failure and achievement.

Galileo galilei was the first person of a new generation of unmanned deep space missions following the voyager and also the pioneer probes some of which are still out there in the solar system.

Galileo spacecraft was launched  in 1989, the spacecraft was powered by radioactive decay of plutonium 238. The solar power was not an option in the depths of the solar system. Some of the people were worried about the contamination from the nuclear waste if there was ever an accident.

The launch of the spacecraft went smoothly, it was afterwards that things went good to bad.
The high - gain antenna which had to send all the information back to earth failed it was supposed to open up like an umbrella but instead it got stuck halfway.

A lot of money had been spent and now at the beginning of the 6th year adventure to jupiter, it seemed that the amazing information is gone but it would be limited to a tiny fraction that could be sent through a small antenna.

Auckland live trip

Auckland live trip
Today on Friday the 1st of June Glenbrae school had a opportunity to go to the town hall centre.
we were separated in two groups one group was Room 9 and the juniors and the second group was Room 10 and Room 7.

Our first activity was when we had to stay in the hall and we met two people from a musical group called Modern Maori quartet. They showed us some singing exercises and showed us a music video they uploaded a long time ago called shine it was very cool working with them.

The second activity we did was when two people introduced themselves and one of them was a dancer and the other worked with the lights. they showed what it felt like being on stage and performing to the audience they showed us things things they do when there is a show and it was really fun performing a song called Haere Mai to the people who were watching us perform.

Lastly our final activity was when we went backstage and saw how they pull up the curtains and also met the people who were gonna perform on stage to the audience. We also saw the people who were doing sorts of different kinds of jobs like putting down the prompts and all sorts of things and it was cool meeting them.

Those were all the three activities we did while we were at the Auckland town hall centre and it was also fun meeting people who worked there which was cool and I hope we get to go again in the future.
