Mysteries about space have puzzled mankind for over many centuries. This partly explains why astronomy was one key area of focus for most ancient civilizations which often tried to tie the mystery and complexity of this domain to religious beliefs. Early astronomers studied the stars and planets and later, the invention of the telescope by Galileo Galilei ushered in new ways of studying the solar system. Using the telescope led to clarifications about many beliefs that society initially held about space.
One of the greatest steps humanity took was on 12 April 1961 when Yuri A. Gagarin orbited the earth from outer space. Later on July 20th 1969, the Apolo 11 mission landed the first men on the moon, headed by American astronaut Neil Amstrong. Recently, space technology has evolved with the improvement in science and technology. Several space missions have been launched to the moon and space, satellites now orbit the earth, telescopes are constantly monitoring many parts of space and there is a lot still to be discovered.
These efforts have provided an abundance of information about the earth and other planets as well as possibilities of life in other planets. Our galaxy is just one in several galaxies in space, yet humans have not fully understood every aspect of it. Curiosity about space starts at an early age and doesn’t necessarily get better when we get older. It is for this reason that kids start learning very early about space, covering basic topics like: the earth and its galaxy, the sun, the moon, rotation and revolution of the earth, the 8 planets, meteors and comets, stars, space history and more.
