Be a Journalist from the Past

  • Find a video of news coverage of a rocket launch on nasa.gov or on youtube.com. Find on nasa.gov a written description of that same mission or launch to help answer the questions below if needed.
  • Imagine that you are a journalist at that time writing about the launch for your local newspaper. Write a newspaper article that covers:
    • Who are the astronauts on the rocket?
    • What is the name of the rocket?
    • Where is the rocket headed?
    • How did the launch happen - was it successful?
    • Why is the launch important?
