Astronautics Activity Badge

Our Scouts are currently working towards their Astronautics Activity Badge!

This week we created a scale model of the solar system using everyday household objects.  We had mercury as a peppercorn and Jupiter as a basketball.  Would you believe that at this scale we couldn’t fit Neptune in the same room!  It had to be 33m away from the sun.

To finish this badge we are going to build bottle rockets.  Hopefully we’ll have some pictures of that!
