Where in our solar system should NASA focus future missions?

Claim: NASA should focus future missions on Europa.

Evidence: Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter, has been recently focused due to the possibility of hosting life. “One of Jupiter’s moons may have plumes, or geysers, spraying clouds of water vapor. In 1997, NASA’s Galileo spacecraft flew by Jupiter’s moon, Europa, to collect data.  Now, a new report suggests that the spacecraft flew directly through a watery plume. The finding is raising hopes for signs of life outside Earth.” “NASA’s Hubble Telescope had spotted repeated evidence of plumes.”

Reasoning: In human’s perspective, water is needed in order to have a hospitable envirnment for life. NASA’s Hubble Telescope had spotted signs of water. This shows the possibility of hospitable envirnment where living creatures might develop. This would tell human beings that humans are not the only living creature in this universe, showing chances of more life throughout this gigantic universe.

ONEDAY: TEACHER FOR A DAY

Yes, it is the last OneDay in middle school. This year, I choose to be an elementary teacher for a day! We went to 2nd grade classrooms and taught the kids for a whole day.

To start with, in the morning, we read our stories to the kids as they cam back from recess and ate their snacks. Then, we did our passion projects, where you could teach the kids anything you desire. I taught the kids math, and I worked on word problems (subtraction) with the kids. After lunch, we helped the PE teachers by looking after kids as they did gymnastics. Finally, we ended the day with a science experiment, and we taught the kids about chemical reactions.

I learnt that being a teacher is not an easy thing. To be a teacher, you need to plan the lesson and teach the lesson. Also, 2nd graders are very active and energetic, they are restless. I would say that being an elementary teacher is one of the hardest jobs on Earth.

It was an unforgettable yet an exhausting experience. I think now I know why teachers drink so much coffee.
