Singastro NEWS 1

This is Singastro News Post 1, the first news post!

Today's topic: Mars Exploration Rovers Getting, arriving and landing on mars

Okay, remember I talked about the Mars Exploration Rovers? Well, I can talk more about it.
In 2003, NASA launched 2 rovers: Spirit and Opportunity to mars, and after their 7 months journey from Earth to Mars, they began their landing on Mars. First, the cruise stage was deployed before reaching the Mars atmosphere. Then it penetrated through the Mars atmosphere and deployed the parachute, the aeroshell dropped off and releases the airbag containing the rover. The airbag inflated and dropped to the Mars surface. It bounced for 1 km and stops. After stopping, the bag opened up and revealed the rover which folded out. Finally, the rover was functioning.

SMK's favourite topics in astronomy

Of course, everyone knows SMK would want to make this blog site because I like  astronomy. But you may ask: "SMK, you like astronomy, right? What part of it you like?" My answer is most probably Mars Exploration. I like the Mars Exploration Rovers launched in 2003 and arrived in 2004.

Welcome to Singastro!

Hi you all,

I'm the Singastro Master Kat (SMK). I'm sure that there are some singaporeans here who like astronomy however had no chance to learn as topics such as "the Solar System" have been cancelled from the Primary Science syllabus in 2009.
But now, thanks to me :D, you will have another area where you can learn astronomy!
