The landing of Rosetta’s Philae probe on a comet was a very exciting addition to our science week. It was a huge scientific breakthrough because it was the first controlled landing on a comet.
Philae had been travelling through space for 10 years which means that it took off 2 or 3 years before most of 2nd class were even born.
Here’s the lovely video on space that we were watching ….
Take a look at our final 2 experiments of the week. Osmosis and The Tornado.
We made a mini tornado today but luckily it was much safer than the one in The Wizard of Oz 🙂
We put water, washing liquid and glitter into a bottle and spun it around. We saw a whirlwind effect which was just like a tornado.
