Liya Khwaja, 12


My assignment was to check out the Visions of the Universe exhibition at the Maritime Museum, Greenwich. First, we were taken on a guided tour of the fascinating new exhibition by a real astronomer! We then played space-related games in the lecture theatre before designing our own moon on an iPad app! I learnt some really awesome facts - did you know there are more stars in the universe than the number of human heartbeats there have ever been on Earth?! I also learnt that is takes Uranus 84 years to make a complete orbit around the sun and 1,300 Earths' could fit into Jupiter!
