Dome

Lana Ramadan (Grade 5)
I was so excited about the dome visiting our school. It was a blue round shaped tent, once we stepped inside it we sat on very comfortable chairs. When the movie started, I felt like I was floating in space near the sun, stars, moon, and planets just like the astronauts. I hoped this moment would never end! We learned facts about space. I wish the planetarium would always come to our school.

On Thursday January 21, 2016, my classmates and I went to the Cosmic Dome that was placed in the school playground. The Cosmic Dome is an inflatable room in a form of a dome where projectors were set to show short films of the universe in 3D, and comfortable chairs were fixed as well to ensure the audience enjoyed the show.
The short films were played to give interesting information and photos about each planet's characteristics, moons, meteoroids and light years. The most exciting thing I found out is that Pluto is no longer considered as a planet since it is more like one of billions of obstacles that have the same shape and size of a small planet-like formation.
The 3D graphics made me feel like I was flying and floating in between the mountains of the planets and it also awakened in me the determination to learn more about space. This experience is definitely to be repeated!
I would like to share with you an interesting piece of information about the light year: Did you know that 1 light year is equal to 9,460,700,000,000 km which is over 9 trillion kilometers!!!!

We all wondered about the myths of the black holes in outer space.
A black hole is usually a dead star. It's a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape it. They are formed when the center of a very massive star collapses in upon itself. The Nebula is a cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium, and other gases, and that's where stars are born.
