Transcript of NASA Scratch Animation

Scratch is a begginer's programming tool used to make many types of animations and games. It helps many people learn to start programming and can also be used just for fun. It is simple and self-explanitory Fun Enjoyable Teaching Entertaining By: Reece Morrow
This is a scratch demo of the mission of the first eight Apollo missions. Their mission was to fly up into space and sling shot around the moon using its small amount of gravity and come back to earth safely. After this they started trying to land on the moon.
This demo demonstrates the different parts of their mission. First is the launch, where the fuel is ignited and propels the rocket up into space (normally water is pored on the mat to dampen the sound, but since there is no sound...). Next, after they get into space, the ship starts to separate all the no longer needed parts, which then fall into the ocean for recovery by NASA. After that it's a week's voyage to the moon. They then use the moon's gravity to carry them around the moon (usually they would circle the moon more than once, but for this project they only go halfway). Next, they return through the Earth’s atmosphere at amazing speeds and the friction makes flames around the hull, which was build to resist this heat. After going through this for about 10-15 minuets, they get through the atmosphere and start their countdown to release the parachutes to slow down their decent (there are three parachutes, each with a large hole in the top so that the fabric doesn’t rip from the friction). Finally, they splashdown in the water and a NASA helicopter, usually accompanied by many government ships comes and picks them up within 10 minutes of the splashdown. After that the three astronauts are taken back to base and are checked for health conditions then have a press conference. Summary NASA Apollo Scratch Project
