Venus & Mars: Space Travel Differences for Women and Men
Title: Venus & Mars: Space Travel Differences for Women and Men
Written by: Loretta Hall, Space Ambassador, National Space Society
Topics: Life Science, Physical Science, Engineering
Audience: Grades 5 - Adult
Have you considered how women and men acclimate to space travel?
This presentation is classroom-ready to be shared with a inquisitive audience and will provoke interesting questions and stir listeners to find out more about paving the human way to space exploration!
Loretta Hall is a freelance writer who is primarily interested in researching and writing about humans preparing for and ultimately achieving spaceflight. She has written five books about space travel topics. She is a certified Space Ambassador for the National Space Society, a great organization that works to promote manned space exploration. Its Space Ambassadors give presentations like this one to inform people about space exploration and hopefully generate interest in and enthusiasm for space missions.

Loretta Hall: Venus and Mars: Space Travel Differences for Women and Men
Ms. Hall’s presentation supports or leads to enriched discussion/application of the following NGSS.
MS-LS1-8 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.
MS-LS1-5 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.
MS-LS2-2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
MS-LS2-4 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions
HS-LS1-3 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis.
HS-LS4-5 Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
Evaluate the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in (1) increases in the number of individuals of some species, (2) the emergence of new species over time, and (3) the extinction of other species.
HS-PS2-6 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.*
HS-LS1-1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
High School (9-12)
Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and trade-offs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
In each slide of the PowerPoint you will find a number which corresponds to the script.
