Skype a session with Lou Mayo by Siya Sharma Gr 6

In English, we are currently learning about man’s fascination for space. We have learnt and researched about different planets, space, astronauts, etc. We have also learnt about NASA’s contribution in exploring possibilities in space. We were fortunate to have an interactive skype session with Mr. Louis Mayo from NASA on December 3rd. The session was on “Pluto Post New Horizons”.

We asked questions like “Is any life possible on Pluto?” Another question which was asked was “Is it true, that the moon Charon is half the size of Pluto?” He answered all the questions with a lot of patience. 

The session was amazing. Mr. Louis was a lot of fun to talk to. He has researched about the moon Titan of the planet Saturn. He shared a PPT with us about Pluto and also the largest moon of Pluto, Charon. He showed us some beautiful pictures of Pluto, which have never been seen before.

I would like to thank Miss Mayura and Miss Sakshi for organizing this session. Looking forward to more of such sessions in the future, too.
