This term I did my project on Abigail (Abby) Allwood. Abby is a 40 year old women who works for NASA. I learnt a lot about her university years.
3 facts I found interesting:
Abigail works at NASA. NASA is a place in America that uses robots to find life or water on other planets that are suitable for human beings to live on.
She is involved in a space launching in 2020. There will be a launching to mars in 2020 to see if they can find living life or water. Ever since Abigail was little she loved hearing about fossils and ever since she has been interested in the developing life on earth.
She was in university for 8 years. Abigail went to university for 8 years. She said it was really fun. The first topic she studied was physics. After words she decided she didn’t like maths and started geology.
I understand that you say NASA, NASA not N A S A. I used to say N A S A instead of NASA. I was told that was wrong when I was rehearsing my recorded interview for my project with my grandma Cherill.
I understand that it takes a lot of work and studying to become a since explorer. I look up to Abigail and someday I want as smart and amazing as her. She has spent most of her life concentrating on since and other planets and now she works for some where, were she learns about things she likes.
I wonder if Abigail will make any life changing studies that everyone will know about. Abigail is a great geologist and I believe she can do something amazing for the world so that us normal people will know about different things going on in space.
The most important things I learnt were:
It takes a long time to do something amazing like a space launching. It takes a lot of effort and a lot of studying so that everything runes smoothly so that we can find out more about other planets and galaxies.
How did I learn it:
By sending Abigail an email. I got a quick response and she was really friendly and didn’t mind sending me pictures and answering my questions.
What am I going to do with what I have learnt: tell people so they also can find out about the different planets in our galaxy.
The overall project was really fun to do but it was challenging at times like at the start of the project I couldn’t find any information.
