This is Ali’s beginners guide to the Moon landings with the added help of his Lego Saturn V. It focuses on the ‘how’ of getting to the Moon and back again. Please feel free to like/share/pass on to anyone who might be interested! Alastair is currently an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh.
In this short animation Paxi, the friendly alien from Space, explores our moon. Paxi looks at the orbit of the Moon and explains the phases of the moon as seen from the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The animation also highlights key concepts related to the moon and demonstrates how solar and lunar eclipses occur. www.stem.org.uk/rxfmuv
