Year 5 land a spaceship!

Year 5 have been investigating the effects of air resistance in our latest space challenge: Can I land it like a Soyuz?

Inspired by the world's safest human spaceflight vehicle, we attempted to land our Lego Chris Hadfield (Canadian astronaut, complete with moustache) at as slow a speed as possible.Working out the speed in metres per second was tricky, but with a few practice runs we got to grips with it and, with some modifications, gave our astronaut a soft landing!
