Thought-provoking space travel for teens

Comments about PBS NOVA scienceNOW: Can We Make it to Mars? DVD:

My high school astronomy classes really enjoy this video! Not only do the five segments (space food, plasma engines, space dangers, better space suits, and guided robotics) push them to think about aspects of human space exploration they haven't considered, scientists, astronauts, and engineers share their excitement about what they do and why they choose science as a career. (I'm always trying to encourage students, especially girls, to choose careers in STEM.) Because this video engages student interest so well and provokes so much discussion, I'm especially pleased that each segment stands alone which fits my short class periods.

Teachers, I highly recommend this video to inspire students to apply what they'll learn about space exploration to create plans for human exploration of the rest of the solar system. It also demonstrates how technologies developed for space exploration benefit society in other ways. Your students will not be bored!

Comments about PBS NOVA scienceNOW: Can We Make it to Mars? DVD:

This fun watch and great to have this DVD because it is an episode I missed and might not have seen any from the season this is from. I liked how it is presented along with past epiosdes I have seen. Nice to learn about the dangers in space and ways to protect people from them. Nice to see the new things being invented and to see the people behind the Mars probes.
