[Cubs] Paper is Amazing

What can paper do?

MONDAY 4 March
How can we shape it to fly further, faster, straighter, or not at all? What do engineers need to consider when designing flying vehicles and how do they overcome problems?
Only a few days ago, a lunar vehicle made a bumpy landing on the moon.. The lander, named Odysseus (first picture on images), is the first US spacecraft to land on the Moon in more than 50 years, carrying experiments for NASA. When landing, one of its 6 feet got caught and the module tipped on its side.
Tonight we will “use our resources wisely” to problem solve flying vehicle problems. Did you know that “use resources wisely” is actually one of the Scout Laws and that the Space exploration and scouting have a long shared history?
In fact, 11 of the 12 moonwalkers were scouts (not the Michael Jackson style moon walking, but the type that actually walked on the moons surface!).
